The Catholic Mass Revealed

I preempt the regularly scheduled blog post to refer you to a wonderful post over at Postscripts from the Catholic Spitfire Grill.  The Lord works in mysterious ways.  Just yesterday I was talking with someone who wanted a blow-by-blow understanding of just what is happening in the Catholic Mass, and this morning I was directed to this illuminating post.  The author goes step by step through the Mass with all of the scriptural references to show that not only is the Mass biblical but is the ultimate communion with Jesus.

I will warn you that it’s a very long post.  At first the author sets up her reasons for writing the post followed by a kind of preface describing the ritual sacrifice in the Old Covenant in relationship to the New Covenant.  This is very important to keep in mind since Jesus was an observant Jew and Christianity began as a Jewish sect.  Therefore, the Mass incorporates elements of first century Judaic worship.  Just past the third block quote is where the author starts the break down of the Mass starting with the phrase, “When we first walk through the door and into the church…”

So, without further ado:

What You Really Need Is an Intimate Relationship with Jesus
