The Mass is a reenactment of the Last Supper from Luke;
22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying,
This is my body which is given for you:this do in remembrance of me.
22:20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is
the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
The Mass is a very simple celebration of the Last Supper which culminates in the
receiving of the Blessed Sacrament. Which is the true food given to us by the Messiah.
John: 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall
live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
The Mass starts with an entrance song and then a brief prayer and some reflection on
your shortcomings as you place yourself before God and ask for His forgiveness so as
to prepare yourself for the Sacred Meal. Then there are some readings from the Bible,
with a reflection on them, the Homily. Then there is the Consecration of the Bread and
Wine into the Body and Blood of Christ, and a final asking for forgiveness;
"Lord I am not worthy to receive You,
but You need only say the word and I shall be healed."
Then we partake of the meal and give thanks. A final song and the Mass is over.
