ASKING FOR MASSES TO BE CELEBRATED
Why ask for a Mass to be celebrated ?
The Eucharist is the source and summit of our Christian life. At Mass, all the love of Jesus pours out in us. It is not only we who benefit from it, but we can present to Christ all our loved ones. You can offer a Mass for a particular purpose: for a living or a deceased person, for yourself, to ask or give thanks to God, for a particular occasion, to support a loved one sick or in difficulty, or for a more general intention concerning the Church or the world.
Why make an offering when asking for a Mass to be celebrated ?
From the beginning of the Church, Christians have been bringing personal offerings to the Eucharistic sacrifice in order to participate more closely. By giving a little of themselves, they join in the offering that Jesus makes to his Father. With their offering, therefore, they do not buy the benevolence of God and they do not “pay for the Mass”, because it has no price! The money serves not to pay for a Mass, but to help the priest to live. An offering, therefore, is a financial contribution whose main purpose is to meet the needs of the priest and his community.
