The Mass is a big part of what drew me to the Catholic Church. It's got so many moving moments that it's hard for it not to speak to you. On a lot of different levels.
What's the best part?
When I started to understand the whole Real Presence thing, I had my answer. It's the consecration.
Given that, the elevation right after the consecration makes sense.
Literally, stopping the Mass. Just for a moment. To reflect on what/Who you're looking at.
If you stop. And really think about it in that moment?
Let's just say, you'll want to do it again. For more than just a moment during Mass. Which is the whole point of Eucharistic Adoration.
More on this tomorrow.
