Jan. 10, 2019 (Luke 4:14-22)

Every village and town had a synagogue but there was only one Temple and that was in Jerusalem. People went to the Temple to make a sacrifice. They went to the synagogue to read and discuss God’s word. Our Liturgy of the Word at mass roughly equates to the synagogue service and our Liturgy of the Eucharist to the sacrifice. How well do we understand what we do when we come to mass? “The effect of our sharing in the Body and Blood of Christ is to change us into what we receive.” St. Leo the Great

  1. We are remiss in teaching our young what constitutes a sacrifice and therefore they don’t recognize the Mass
    As a Sacrifice or their office as part of the general priesthood. How can they be aware that they become one with the Son in His profoundly intimate act of love for the Father in this offering?
    Without this consciousness we never hear the melodious Sigh of Love which is the Holy Spirit.
