What really happens during each part of the Mass?

What really happens during each part of the Mass?
You have to watch this exceptional video

The Catholic Mass is the most sacred act of worship a person can participate in upon earth. At the Last Supper, Jesus Christ, sat down with his chosen Apostles for what He knew would be their last meal together. At that supper, Jesus does something new, something never done before, and yet something which continues until the end of time.

Knowing more about the Mass, we can be closer to Christ and to the miracle He left us on that Holy Thursday night.

“The Catholic Mass…Revealed!” (www.catholicmass.org) is designed to help all people, whether Catholic or not, to better understand the miracle of the Mass. We can come to appreciate its beauty, its rhythm, even why many in history have faced death rather than be deprived of the opportunity to participate in the Mass.

Our prayer is that you come to know and love the Mass as making present again the sacrifice of Christ’s love for us, and a continuation of His Last Supper with his apostles. You too can come to know and love Jesus Christ who both commands and invites us to encounter Him in this very special way.

  1. This video is nice, but what really needs to be understood is the meaning behind each part of the Mass. I have come to understand that the entrance (or beginning of the Mass) signifies Christ's entrance into Jerusalem. My memory escapes me, but it is the story of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter. So to know what each part means is of great value to those who truly do not understand why we do what we do at Mass. Is there a way someone out there can fill in the blanks for me and others?
