Preparing to Hear Mass

A few parishioners in contemplation at St. Michael's Cathedral. Photo Credit.

All good works together are not of equal value with the sacrifice of the Mass, because they are the works of men, and the holy Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison; it is the sacrifice that man makes of his life to God; the Mass is the sacrifice that God makes to man of His Body and of His Blood… We ought always to devote at least a quarter of an hour to preparing ourselves to hear Mass well

  1. Thanks for the beautiful picture. I recently discovered your blog and am enjoying it so much.

  2. I'm not sure what it is, but in this picture the light looks almost as *blue* as the Basilique Notre Dame in Montreal.
