It's about Jesus

Fr. Rob Johansen has posted an excellent homily he gave this weekend that forms the first in a series of three on the Mass. It covers what all together too many people still get very wrong about the Mass - what is it all about?

But here’s the thing: even if we never felt we got anything out of Mass, it would still be the most noble, holy, amazing, and important thing we could ever do – because the Mass isn’t about us. The Mass is about giving the perfect honor, glory and worship to God, through making present to us here, on this altar, the eternal self-offering and sacrifice of Christ. The Mass is about Jesus, not about us.

Read the rest. You won't be sorry.
