In many places around the world the reality of the sacrificial nature of the Mass has been seriously down-played to the detriment of the spiritual life of the faithful. Pope John Paul II lamented this in his encyclical, Icclesia de Eucharistia (No. 10) where he addressed his concern at the current state of affairs, saying, "at times one encounters an extremely reductive understanding of the Eucharistic mystery. Stripped of its sacrificial meaning, it is celebrated as if it were simply a fraternal banquet." Speaking about the impact on the ordained priesthood he went on to say, "Furthermore, the necessity of the ministerial priesthood, grounded in apostolic succession, is at times obscured and the sacramental nature of the Eucharist is reduced to its mere effectiveness as a form of proclamation." The present work examines this whole question in depth, showing how, especially in the Roman Canon, the sacrificial nature of the Mass is emphasized and expressed as it always ought to be.
It is sad and shocking that in many places around the world the reality of the sacrificial nature of the Holy Mass has been seriously downplayed to the detriment of the spiritual life of the faithful. This book reasserts the fact that the Mass is a sacrifice in as much as it is a banquet.
