Mass Is More Than Essential — It Is the Source and Summit of Our Life

Unknown German Master, “Holy Mass in a Village Church,” 18th century

“The Eucharist is the heart and the summit of the Church’s life, for in it Christ associates his Church and all her members with his sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered once for all on the cross to his Father; by this sacrifice he pours out the graces of salvation on his Body which is the Church.” [1407]
