How our Modernoid Massuhs continue to miss the masses by messing with the Mass…

“Traditionally, the ends of the Mass are described as four-fold: adoration, atonement, thanksgiving, and petition. ‘Evangelization’ is not included in these ends. This does not mean that the Mass does not have a role in evangelization efforts; after all, the Mass is the source and summit of the Christian Faith, so it has a role in everything a Christian does. So if evangelization is not an end of the Mass, what is the relationship between the two? Though not the Mass’s purpose, evangelization is a fruit of the Mass. Participating in the Mass, sacramentally uniting ourselves to the Sacrifice of Calvary, each Catholic receives the strength to go out and make disciples of all nations.”

Making Mass “Relevant” is Irrelevant to Evangelization
