THE VALUE AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE HOLY MASS. The whole liturgy of the Church finds its center and its most dense expression in the celebration of the Holy Mass. In the Holy Mass we have the culmination of the action with which God sanctifies the world in Christ and the culmination of the worship that men render to Christ and for him to the Father in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Mass actualizes the one sacrifice of Christ the Savior and also includes the offering of the Church; it is a sacrifice of praise, a spiritual sacrifice, a pure and holy sacrifice, since it brings to fulfillment and surpasses all the sacrifices of the Old Covenant. By celebrating the Holy Mass, we already join the liturgy of heaven and anticipate eternal life, when God will be all in all. All the sacraments, all the ecclesiastical ministries and the works of the apostolate are closely united to it and are ordered to it. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Vatican City, 1992).
The Sanctuary has established the devotion of Perpetual Masses in the wake of the Sanctuary of Notre Dame de Montligeon (France), a world center of prayer for the dead, and of many other sanctuaries and realities in Italy and around the world that offer the possibility of entrusting and remotely share intentions of prayer, even perpetual and of intercession (as for a deceased loved one, for the healing of the sick, for young people) or to have single, Gregorian Masses (a Mass per day for 30 consecutive days) or perpetual The Vatican City also offers the possibility to send and share one’s prayer intentions online. These are just some examples that can be useful to those who do not know who to contact to have a Perpetual or Gregorian Mass celebrated at a distance, or to send intentions and requests for urgent prayers, even confidential and anonymously.
