What can be more coveted than one Holy Mass? Its worth cannot be measured. It is considered priceless, of infinite value…
From the depths of the Tabernacle, Jesus repeats to us what He formerly said to His disciples: “Behold, I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.” Behold I am with you, not for a day, for a month, for a year, but for all future ages until the consummation of the world.
As long as there remains on the earth one single soul to visit Me, to love Me, to receive Me, I will remain in the Eucharist! “O My children,” Our Lord says to us, “although I have ascended to heaven do not imagine that you have lost Me; I am very near you; I, your God, your Father, your Redeemer, your Friend! I am in the Eucharist in My own Person. I remain in this Sacrament in order to be the companion of your earthly pilgrimage, your help in dangers, your consolation in your trials, and your strength in temptation. Come to Me, all you that labor and are burdened, and I will refresh you.”
“The celebration of the Holy Mass is as valuable as the death of Jesus on the cross.” -St. Thomas Aquinas
“If we really understood the Mass, we would die of joy.” -St. John Vianney
This Christmas, as a gift to you, my dear friends, a special Triduum of Masses will be offered by Father Lillard, F.S.S.P. for the intentions of all of you who read this blog.
I pray that we may all fulfill our duties in a more Christ-like manner this coming year, that Our Lady will take our hands and guide us through our difficulties and through our interior struggles.
May we learn to be more deeply grateful for the good times, for friends and family, for all that God has given us…..for each day we can wake up and have the freedom to choose to go to Mass.
May you all have a Blessed Christmas Season!!
May your Faith be a beacon of light!
