Transcript of 9C Mass and Catholic Liturgy
The Greatest Treasure Hunt
The shaking of hands, or "the sign of peace"
is a gesture of union and forgiveness.
The word "communion" means "union with God and
The Sign of Peace
Before Mass & Opening
Liturgy of the Eucharist
Liturgy of the Word
The Eucharist =
The celebration of the Eucharist
takes us back to the last supper
The priest will mix wine (which symbolizes Jesus' divinity) and a drop of water (which symbolizes that Jesus humbled himself to share in our humanity.)
Preparation of the Gifts
"Setting the Table"
The Altar is
a special table at which the Eucharistic meal is prepared
We give God praise and thanks.
= "Holy, holy, holy"
"Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed."
What do we see and do when we enter the church?
they represent the light of Christ
this reminds of our baptism and the washing away of our sins
We kneel before the pew out of reverence for the presence of Jesus
The first reading
prophesizes what Jesus will do
The second reading
from an Apostolic letter telling us what Jesus did
this is sung to praise God
this is from the Gospels which show the presence of Jesus
Why we do stand at this reading?
We stand out of respect for the presence and word of Christ
A time for us to hear how we can carry out the Word in a practical way
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ,
His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary;
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell;
the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy catholic Church,
the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
This is not just a laundry list of catholic teachings, but the profession of our faith
During this time we take what we learn from the readings and offer up our prayers for the Church
We must prepare ourselves to join our sacrifices with the sacrifice of the Lord.
"Let us give thanks to the Lord."
"It is right and just."
We are thankful that even in our
unworthiness, God invites
us to partake in such
a beautiful gift.
"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory."
"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty..."
"Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in
the name of the Lord!...Hosanna in the
How Jesus taught us to pray
Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done.
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
A basket is passed around, so that the Church members can donate to the Church. This is a symbolic and real way of "dying to ourselves." In this way, we give of ourselves.
Members of the Church Congregation bring up the gifts of water, wine, and bread. This enables us to participate in God''s work of bringing his Kingdom to our world.
Jesus chose to use "the work of human hands" - bread and wine, for the Eucharist.
We offer ourselves to God
Lamb of God = Jesus
Jesus is our sacrificial lamb, who gives His life for us on the Cross.
The whiteness of the lamb represents innocence and purity. Jesus was without sin, yet died for all of our sins.
Before Communion, we sing the "Lamb of God"
"...This is my body which will be given up for you."
"...This is the chalice of my blood, the blood of the new and eternal covenant, which will be poured out for you and for many, for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in memory of me."
The bread and wine turn into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ
Saint Augustine said, "Amen is the
The Great Amen
We sing the Great Amen.
Jesus is now truly in the Eucharist. We are saying that "YES! We believe."
"And know that I am with you always, until the end of the world!"
Jesus is our treasure!
& announce the Gospel of the Lord.
But why should we partake in this "treasure hunt?"
If we found a buried treasure,
would we leave it buried in the
Jesus, is our buried treasure!
Bring Him into the world!
"With all the strength of my soul I urge you young people to approach the Communion table as often as you can. Feed on this bread of angels whence you will draw all the energy you need to fight inner battles. Because true happiness, dear friends, does not consist in the pleasures of the world or in earthly things, but in peace of conscience, which we have only if we are pure in heart and mind.”
-Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
The true meaning of our lives is to be in union with God. He is the only one who can make us TRULY HAPPY.
"You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you."
"Anyone who eats this bread he shall live forever, the bread I will give is my flesh."
- John 6:51
What does the Eucharist mean to you?
Let's go on a treasure hunt for JESUS!
Jesus is our spiritual food.
Just as we need food for our bodies,
we must nourish our souls.
You become ONE with Jesus.
