"The Mass is the most perfect form of prayer!" - Pope Paul VI
For each Mass we hear with devotion, Our Lord sends a saint to comfort us at death. (revelation of Christ to St. Gertrude the Great)
St. Padre Pio, the stigmatic priest, said, "Every holy Mass, heard with devotion, produces in our souls marvelous effects, abundant spiritual and material graces which we, ourselves, do not know. It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the holy Sacrifice of the Mass."
St. John Vianney said that if we knew the value of the Mass, we would die of joy.
Your prayers are the strongest at the Consecration in Holy Mass (raising of Host and Chalice).
Each time we look at The Most Blessed Sacrament our place in heaven is raised forever (revealed by Our Lord to St. Gertrude the Great.)
"The Holy Mass would be of greater profit if people had it offered in their lifetime, rather than having it celebrated for the relief of their souls after death." - Pope Benedict XV
Once, St. Teresa of Avila was overwhelmed with God's Goodness and asked Our Lord, "How can I thank you?" Our Lord replied, "ATTEND ONE MASS."
The Blessed Virgin Mary once told her faithful servant, Blessed Alain, "My Son so loves those who assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that, if it were necessary, He would die for them as many times as they've heard Masses."
