The mass gives false hope of salvation to many. They tell you it will remove daily sins & offer closeness to God. Please, understand that John 55 & 56 describes a personal union through faith in Christ, not his true flesh in a wafer. This could only be temporary & needed again & again to maintain salvation. This is works based & offers no assurance of their eternity. Every reason listed for mass is supported by the Catholic catechism, NOT from scripture!
