Discover the Mass!

Dear Villagers,

Next Sunday we will be exploring the Mass. Last year we discussed how we could 'live' the Mass- Monday through Saturday! We talked about how the Mass is the starting place for 'whole life worship'.
This year, for the first time ever we will be doing a dry run through of the Mass led by Father Chas! We will delve into the truth that in each part of Holy Mass, we find the summary of God's love for us. Come to learn more about how the Mass has been constructed to lead you deeper in your encounter with Jesus.
Can you share one insight that you have had about the Mass, either taught or learned?

mr. peters the younger said...

We certainly did get lost!

That was great and
there were sooo many people!!!

I must say, the mind tends to get slightly unhinged when you're in a corn-maize for too long :-)

Changing subjects, I get to see Sister Innocence this weekend (for those who don't know, she's my sister, who was a member of the Village before joining a religious order in Washington D.C.) !!!!! I'll be sure to say "Hi" to her from the Village!
