HOLY MASS IS YOUR LIFE!
an article from the Universal Living Rosary Association of St. Philomena
rational man needs the Mass to pay Almighty God the debt of homage and
adoration he owes Him. The grateful man needs the Mass to pay his
debt of thanksgiving. The sinful man, and who among us is without
sin, needs the mass to propitiate God's justice and to pay his debt`of
The needy man needs the Mass, that
praying with Jesus Christ and through Him, he may offer a prayer that is
worthy of being heard and, thus, discharge his duty and debt of petition.
At the hour of death, the Masses
you have heard will be your greatest consolation. Every Mass will go
with you to judgment and plead for pardon. At every Mass, you can
diminish the temporal punishment due to your sins. Assisting
devoutly at Mass, you render the Sacred Humanity of Jesus, the greatest
homage. He supplies for many of your negligence's and omissions.
He forgives you all the venial sins you are determined to avoid. He
forgives you all the unknown sins you have never confessed. The
power of Satan over you is diminished.
By hearing Mass, you afford the Souls in Purgatory the greatest possible
relief. One Mass heard by you, during life, will be of more benefit
to you than many heard for you after death.
Holy Mass preserves you from many
dangers and misfortunes that would otherwise befall you. You shorten
your Purgatory by every Mass. You win for yourself a higher degree
of glory in Heaven. At Mass, you kneel amidst a multitude of angels
who are present at the adorable Sacrifice with reverential awe. You
receive the priest's blessing which Our Lord Himself ratifies in Heaven...
you are blessed in your temporal goods and affairs.
"If you ask the Father
anything in My Name, He will give it to you."
