Conceptualizing Sunday Mass

By Expert Author: ryan bilodeau

When you think regarding the Sunday Mass' many parts, do altar servers and organists come to mind? What regarding the readings, followed by the gospel, homily as well as The Eucharist? The people involved, its chronological parts and the number of parishioners present tend to be, among others, a couple additional ways of thinking regarding our weekly trip to Mass. Today I want to provide some different methods of thinking regarding Mass that might hopefully serve as a wider lens through which you can view our weekly encounter with Heaven.

Due to the fact the Sunday Mass doesn't exist in a vacuum cleaner, its present form reflects historical developments. Anyone reading this who attended Mass before Vatican II certainly knows this to be true.

The Mass can also be thought of in terms of paradigm shifts. The Mass' development first from Jewish rites of worship and the subsequent innovations made by Jesus come to mind. Our Eucharistic prayer mimics, for example, the Hebrew Berakah prayer in which we bless God, you keep in mind His gifts and you then ask for something. The Eucharist itself was Jesus' innovation of the temple sacrifice. Whereas the sacrifice in the temple involving animals was bloody, Jesus' Eucharistic sacrifice that you encounter at each Mass is an un-bloody one.

Over its history, the Mass was also influenced by the Roman world see. We are, following all, the Roman Catholic Church. In one of the Eucharistic prayers, we remember a string of Saints (our ancestors in the faith) with level of scrupulosity and familial importance reserved just for the Romans.

The Mass on world is a participation in the heavenly liturgy as well as, as such, involves a fact deeper than we might originally realize. These tend to be just some small examples of the fact underpinning what you see each week. Can you think of any kind of others?
