Some Wonderful Quotes On The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass

"The Church must steadily and firmly heed that although the language of the people may change, the language of liturgy should not be altered. Thus, the Mass must be said in the language in which it was said from the beginning, even if such a language be already, antiquated and strange to the people, for it is wholly enough, if the learned men understand it. "

~Pope Benedict XIV

On the Mass in Latin:
"If there are some present who do not understand what is being said or sung, they know at least that all is said and sung to the glory of God, and that is sufficient for them to join in it devoutly. "

~ St. Augustine

"Mass badly celebrated is an enormous evil. Ah! it is not a matter of indifference how it is said! . . . I have had a great vision on the mystery of Holy Mass and I have seen that whatever good has existed since creation is owing to it."
~ Anne Catherine Emmerich

When you are before the altar where Christ reposes, you ought no longer to think
that you are amongst men, but believe that there are troops of angels and
archangels standing by you, and trembling with respect before the sovereign
Master of Heaven and earth.? Therefore, when you are in church, be there in
silence, fear, and veneration.?

~St. John Chrysostom


"If there are some present who do not understand what is being said or sung, they
know at least that all is said and sung to the glory of God, and that is sufficient for
them to join in it devoutly."

~ St. Augustine


"If there is anything divine among man's possessions which might excite
the envy of the citizens of heaven (could they ever be swayed by such a
passion), this is undoubtedly the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, by
means of which men, having before their eyes, and taking into their
hands the very Creator of heaven and earth, experience, while still on
earth, a certain anticipation of heaven.How keenly, then, must mortals strive to preserve and protect this
inestimable privilege with all due worship and reverence, and be ever on
their guard lest their negligence offend the angels who vie with them in
eager adoration!"

~ Pope Urban VII in 1634

The essential beauty [of the Mass] remains, whether the holy rite be performed under the golden vault of St. Peter's or in a wretched wigwam, erected in haste by some poor savages for their missionary.

--Pope Pius IX


"Nothing is so consoling, so piercing, so thrilling, so overcoming, as the Mass, said as it is among us. I could attend Mass forever, and not be tired. It is not a mere form of words; it is a great action. The greatest action that can be on earth. It is. . .the evocation of the Eternal."

~ John Henry Cardinal Newman
