Holy Trinity Church
From the Pastor
Why do we attend Holy Mass on Sunday? God tells us to keep holy the Sabbath day. Holy Mass and fervent prayer are the best means to do that. Jesus gave us the Mass at the Last Supper. It is in a manner, his best and final gift to us. Holy Mass honors God and changes hearts of those who pray in sincerity. The saints were devoted to Mass even daily. Saint John Vianney, patron saint of parish priests said, “If we really understood the Mass, we would die of joy.”
At Mass when we are in the state of grace, we receive the Holy Eucharist, the very body and blood of Jesus. At Mass we always hear Sacred Scripture. What does God say to us? Mass offers us the living bread; see John 6:51.
Do we have to go to church in order to pray? We can pray anywhere but church is a special setting. Mass is our best prayer. Some people are angry at the Church. We admit that we have sinned. There are flawed people in the Church, but Christ and the saints are also in it. Mass should be the spiritual highlight of the week. Come faithfully and pray devoutly.
