The start of another liturgical year is a good time to remind of participation in the Sunday Mass. Here Fr Roger Paponette, parish priest, San Raphael shares on rituals before and after Mass.
The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. “The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it.
For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch” (LG 11, CCC 1324, PO 5)
