CATHOLIC READER,

ST. FRANCIS DE SALES, speaking of the Mass, calls it “the most holy, sacred, and august sacrifice;—the Sun of spiritual exercises ;-the Centre of the Christian religion;-the Heart of devotion, and the Soul of piety:-a Mystery so ineffable, as to comprise within itself that abyss of divine charity, whence God communicates himself really to us, and, in a special manner, replenishes our souls with spiritual graces and favours.”

“ When prayer," continues the Saint, “is united to this divine sacrifice, it becomes so unspeakably efficacious, as to cause the soul to overflow, as it were, with heavenly consolations."

“Endeavour, therefore, to assist at Mass every day, that you may, jointly with the priest, offer up the holy sacrifice of your Redeemer to God his Father, for yourself and the whole Church. The angels, says St. Chrysostom, always attend in great numbers to honour this adorable mystery; and we, by associating ourselves to them with the same intention, cannot but receive many favourable influences from so holy a society. The choirs of the triumphant and militant Church unite themselves to our Lord in this divine action; that with Him, in Him, and through Him, they may gain the heart of God the Father, and make his mercy all our own."
