The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the greatest prayer and act of worship of the New Law. According to Catholic Tradition, Holy Mass was instituted by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper as the new form of worship for the New Law. He did this immediately after He fulfilled the Jewish Paschal ceremonies of the Old Law, thus symbolically bridging them in order to show succession. The priesthood was instituted primarily in order to celebrate the Mass and distribute the graces which flow from it. In reality, the Mass is the unbloody sacrifice of Calvary again; since Christ is without time, He is always present at the moment of the crucifixion, and since He is the source of the priesthood as well as the sacrificial victim, the Mass is a timeless window into the moment of His death from which all grace flows and sins are forgiven. The Mass as well is perfect in that it achieves the four ends of prayer: adoration, Thanksgiving, petition and reparation. Holy Mass is the center and apex of Christian experience and identity.

Roman Catholic AnswerBecause that is what it is! The Mass is the re-presentation of Our Blessed Lord's sacrifice of Himself on the Cross at Calvary.

The origin of the Catholic Mass?

The origin of the Catholic Mass was Our Blessed Savior's death on the cross.

How do Catholics celebrate Holy Communion?

Roman Catholic AnswerIn the Catholic Church we do not celebrate Holy Communion, we celebrate the Eucharist or Holy Mass as it is commonly called. Holy Communion only refers to the union of the Communicant with Our Blessed Lord through the reception of His Body and Blood, usually inside of Holy Mass. The Mass is the re-presentation of Our Blessed Lord's Passion and Death on the Cross, the making present of this one Sacrifice for us, the the making available of the graces earned for us by Our Blessed Lord on the Cross. These graces are given most excellently through the reception of Holy Communion.

Can you receive Holy Communion more than once a day?

Catholic AnswerYes, if circumstances are such that you must attend a Mass, you may receive Holy Communion at a second time only if it is at a Mass and you have been there for the entire Mass. So, if you received Holy Communion outside of Mass (a Communion Service, individual Holy Communion, or Communion for the sick, and later that day you attend Mass) or if you attended another Mass earlier on the same day. You may not receive Holy Communion the second time outside of a Mass you have attended. You may not receive Holy Communion a third time, normally, in the same day.
