20th Sunday after Pentecost 2023
The three principal parts of the Mass are the Offertory, the Consecration, and the Communion of the Priest. If we miss one of these parts, we have not assisted at Mass. We are united to the sacrifice and are offered up with Christ. The Mass is the purpose of creation, because it is the essence of religion and the greatest means of offering honor to God. We are told to redeem the time we have lost. We have the grace to make a conversion at any moment. We need to pray fervently, because our salvation depends on it.
