Without The Mass There Would Be Nothing (Mass Conversions)
During our current crisis within the Church, it is not a time of despair and giving up, but a time to turn back with even more love and devotion to that which has saved and sanctified Catholics!
"I believe that were it not for the Holy Mass, as of this moment the world would be in the abyss. Why is it you do not ask great graces at this favorable time? I earnestly advise and exhort you to ask God in every Mass, the grace to become a saint. Do you think I advise you to ask too much? Well, I tell you it is not too much. Has not our good and loving Master promised us in the Gospel that for a cup of cold water, given in His Name, He will bestow the Kingdom of Heaven? How then can He refuse us a hundred heavens, were there so many, in return for the Blood of His Beloved Son, offered to Him on the Altar? How can you, therefore, doubt that He will give you every virtue, and all the perfection required to make you a saint, and a great saint in Heaven? O blessed Mass! Let your heart’s desires be then multiplied a thousand-fold, and ask as much as you will; remembering always that you are asking of God, Who cannot grow poor by giving, and, therefore, the more you ask, the more will He give you.“
– St. Leonard of Port Maurice, ‘The Hidden Treasure of the Mass’
St. Teresa of Avila writes: “When you do not receive Communion and you do not attend Mass, you can make a spiritual Communion, which is a most beneficial practice; by it the love of God will be greatly impressed on you,” [The Way of Perfection, Ch. 35.].
“If you practice the holy exercise of Spiritual Communion a good many times each day, within a month you will see yourself completely changed.” – St. Leonard
