Missa defunctorum, or in English Mass of the Dead. (a.k.a. Requiem). In the old days, when someone died, family, friends and acquaintances of the deceased prayed for the repose of the person's soul. It was "look forward" not a look backward as are present day practices.

Holy Mass...St. John Vianney, "When we receive Holy Communion, we experience something extraordinary - a joy, a fragrance, a well being that thrills the whole body and causes it to exalt." "If we really understood the Mass, we would die of joy." "There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious, He would have given it to us." "When we have been to Holy Communion, the balm of love envelops the soul as the flower envelops the bee."

Holy Mass... St. Gregory, Doctor of the Church "The heavens open and multitudes of angels come to assist in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass." "It is most true that he who attends holy Mass shall be freed from many evils and from many dangers, both seen and unseen."
M is for mass, celebration of The Eucharist - Jesus is With us: Love the Holy Mass - St. Josemaria Escriva
Holy Mass... St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church "The angels surround and help the priest when he is celebrating Mass." "He who devoutly hears holy Mass will receive a great vigor to enable him to resist mortal sin, and there shall be pardoned to him all venial sins which he may have committed up to that hour."
A majority of the people who live in Italy are Roman Catholic. Both the religion of Islam and Catholicism are "Abrahamic Religions," meaning they both trace their history to a covenant between God and Abraham. As a part of Catholicism, many churches have statues and paintings of religious figures, such as the Virgin Mary and Jesus. While this is a common aspect of Catholicism, the Islamic religion does not support this.

Symbols- Wine by itself was a celebration in anticipation of Jesus. People of old times would drink wine when they expected Jesus to come to their city. Furthermore, Jesus changed water into wine as a way to announce his presence. The combination of these things grew the symbol of wine which represented Jesus and his arrival in a new place. "Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, truly present in the Holy Eucharist, I place my trust in You."
"Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, truly present in the Holy Eucharist, I place my trust in You." 12. In the excess of the mercy of my Heart, I promise you that my all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive Communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in my displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and my Heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.
Most Sacred Heart Of Jesus, I Place My Trust In You ❤️ Amen
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
Down in adoration falling,This great Sacrament we hail, O’er ancient forms of worship; Newer rites of grace prevail; Faith will tell us Christ is present,When our human senses fail.

I chose this image because it showed the cleansing of the church being done which is an old practice. One particular church that does this is, the Greek Orthodox Church. I have actually seen this being done in the Catholic Church here in town during my confirmation ceremony. It happened before the confirmation happened.

"What happens at Mass....so don't forget to pray for the souls in purgatory in Eucharistic Mass" --- SO UNBIBLICAL! Purgatory is NOT a teaching of the Bible. It would make Jesus' sacrifice worthless!!! He already paid for our sins so we don't have to.
What happens at Mass....so don't forget to pray for the souls in purgatory during Eucharistic Mass. Read "Holy Mass" by Katalina Rivas- you will never think of or attend Holy Mass the same again!
What happens at Mass....so don't forget to pray for the souls in purgatory in Eucharistic Mass. This picture will probably go through my mind now at every mass .
By assisting them we shall not only give great pleasure to God, but will acquire also great merit for ourselves. And, in return for our suffrages, these blessed souls will not neglect to obtain for us many graces from God, but particularly the grace of eternal life

‘By assisting them we shall not only give great pleasure to God, but will acquire also great merit for ourselves. And, in return for our suffrages, these blessed souls will not neglect to obtain for us many graces from God, but particularly the grace of eternal life. I hold for certain that a soul delivered from Purgatory by the suffrages of a Christian, when she enters paradise, will not fail to say to God: “Lord, do not suffer to be lost that person who has liberated me from the prison of ...

The Holy Mass. I always have this image in my head at mass. It reminds me that during the consecration of the bread to become to body of Jesus - the communion of Saints are also gathered to witness Jesus' presence. It is at this time, I believe my family and loved ones that have passed are also celebrating the holy mass in the communion with all of us here on earth. #catholic #mass
This is the WHOLE Catholic Church: the Church Triumphant (in Heaven), the Church Militant (on earth- fighting the World, the Flesh & the Devil), and the Church Suffering (in Purgatory- being purified) The WHOLE Church attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass! Angels in Heaven also attend every Catholic Mass!!

"Mass is boring?" Awesome portrayal of the Catholic Mass, blessed my son doesn't think this way!
The Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Sacrifice of the Eucharist as the central act of worship of the Catholic Church. The "Mass" is a late form of missio (sending), from which the faithful are sent to put into practice what they have learned and use the graces they have received in the Eucharistic liturgy. The Mass cannot be understood apart from Calvary, of which it is a re-presentation, memorial, and effective application of the merits gained by Christ.

In dying with Him, we rise with Him. That's why we ought to receive Him worthily-- and that's why we go to Mass. We go to Mass to participate in Christ's salvation of us, and when we receive Jesus worthily, we become more Christ-like.

Catholic Prayer, Catholic Teaching, Bishops Priests, Catholic Faith, Catholic Christian, Blessed Sacrament, Catholic Church, Catholic Priest, Faithful Priests
Catholic Teaching: We are taught the sacrament of holy orders is the baptized men are ordained into the permanent ministry to the church. This includes bishops, priests, or deacons.
Catholic Teaching: Priests, deacons, and bishops are personally and spiritually called from God to spread His Word. Catholicism teaches that as disciples of God, those of the church have a duty or mission to spread the message of God.
Catholic Teaching- Teaching the faithful, leading divine worship, and governing the church are all responsibilities that are placed on the priest. This does not make them any more important than a regular person, but it just means that they are called to do something specific for God's kingdom.
Catholic Teachings: All priests are supposed to by like David and follow Christ throughout their lives.
Catholic Teaching- Jesus is the one who teaches all how to spread the word of God. It was at the Last Supper that he sent his disciples out to spread the word and the love of God.
"God dwells in our midst, in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar." ~St. Maximilian Kolbe
