1 The Mass Celebration of the Holy Eucharist RCIA October 10, 2013
2 The Sacrifice of the Holy Eucharist dates back to the early Church and is spoken of as early as the 2 nd century in the writings of the Church fathers. Holy Eucharist
3 Mass Although the celebration of the Eucharist existed in the early Church, the term Mass was not introduced until the 4 th century when it was used by St Ambrose and St Augustine.
4 Missa The term is derived from the Latin Missa which originated from the practice of the dismissal of catechumens prior to the Eucharist. Others relate it to the dismissal at the end of the service where we are encouraged to go forth in peace to love and serve the Lord.
5 Mass In the Roman Catholic Church we reserve the term Mass to liturgical services where the bread and wine are consecrated through the power of the Holy Spirit and become the Real Body and Blood of Christ
6 Mass The Mass is formed by two great parts that form a fundamental unity: The Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist The Catechism notes that the Eucharistic table set for us is the table both of the Word of God and of the Body of the Lord.
7 Prior to Mass 15 minutes early Holy Water Genuflect or bow Prayer Reverential Silence
8 The Mass is Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
9 The Mass is Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The bishops at the Second Vatican Council brought together these three mysteries in a multifaceted description of the Mass: At the Last Supper, on the night when he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his body and blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the Cross throughout the centuries until he should come again and in this way to entrust to his beloved Bride, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is eaten, the heart is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, #42).
10 The Mass as a Meal When friends gather for a meal, they sit and talk. Eventually they move to the table, say grace, pass the food and eat and drink, and finally take their leave and go home. Thomas Richstatter, OFM On our walk through the Mass we will follow this same structure: We will see ritual acts of Gathering Introductory Rites Storytelling Liturgy of the Word Meal sharing Holy Eucharist (Communion) Dismissal/commissioning Dismissal/Final Blessing
11 Introductory Rites The intent is that the assembled group unite as a community properly prepared to hear God's Word and celebrate the Eucharist. Coming together, assembling, is at the heart of our Sunday worship. The reason behind each of the ritual actions of the first part of the Mass can be found in this word: Gathering
12 Introductory Rites The Mass begins with the procession of the priest, deacon, and altar servers through the midst of the people. It is a sign of ministry in the midst of God s people. When the Mass begins everyone stands. Standing is the traditional posture of the Christian at prayer. It expresses our attentiveness to the word of God and our readiness to carry it out. Entrance Antiphon (Or processional hymn) - page 2 Often we begin by singing together. What better way to gather than to unite our thoughts and our voices in song. It is said that when we sing in Mass we pray twice. Should reflect the liturgical spirit of the day or season
13 Introductory Rites The Book of the Gospels is carried in by the deacon or lector (if no deacon is present.) The Book of Gospels is held slightly elevated as a sign of reverence to the Word of God. The altar is reverenced with a kiss by the priest and deacon. During special Masses incense may be used. The Greeting/Blessing page 6 The priest will ask us to begin with the sign of the cross, again reminding us of Baptism, and will greet us, saying, The Lord be with you. You will hear this greeting frequently. It is both a wish (may the Lord be with you) and a profound statement of faith (as you assemble for worship, the Lord is with you). The ritual response to this greeting is always the formula, And with your spirit.
14 Introductory Rites Rite of Blessing and Sprinkling of Holy Water - page 6 This is done at special masses and replaces the customary Rite of Penitence. This represents a form of blessing on the gathered faithful We are asked to pause and recall our common need for salvation in the Penitential Rite. May take different forms: Penitential Rite page 8 Confiteor Kyrie (Lord, Have Mercy) Kyrie Eléison The Rite of Penitence to those who are truly contrite absolves one of venial sin
15 Introductory Rites Gloria (Glory to God) - page 10 The hymn Glory to God in the Highest is sung at this point. The Gloria has been a part of the Mass since about the sixth century. Opening Prayer (Collect) - pages We are called to a moment of shared, deep silence in the presence of the great mystery we call God. This deep silence is concluded by the priest praying aloud the Opening Prayer or Collect.
16 The Collect (Opening Prayer) The Collect begins with the words, Let us pray The priest will ask us to join our minds in prayer, and after a few moments of silence he will collect our intentions into one prayer to which we all respond Amen, a Hebrew word for So be it. The silence is the heart of the collect. The words of the collect are not. The collect concludes our gathering /Introductory Rites SIT
17 Liturgy of the Word
18 Liturgy of the Word When we gather at a friend s home for a meal, we always begin with conversation, telling our stories. At Mass, after the rites of gathering, we sit down and listen as readings from the Word of God are proclaimed. They are the stories of God s people. During the Liturgy of the Word the Word of God is proclaimed, responded to, authoritatively explained, accepted and held fast, and appealed to. First Reading Responsorial Psalm Second Reading Gospel Acclamation (Alleluia) Gospel Reading STAND SIT
19 First Reading The first reading will usually be from the Hebrew Scriptures. We recall the origins of our covenant. It will relate to the Gospel selection and will give background and an insight into the meaning of what Jesus will do in the Gospel.
20 Responsorial Psalm Following the 1 st reading we will sing a psalm a song from God s own inspired hymnal, the Book of Psalms of the Hebrew Bible.
21 Second Reading The second reading will usually be from one of the letters of Paul or another apostolic writing.
22 Gospel Gospel Acclamation (Alleluia) STAND Because of the unique presence of Christ in the proclamation of the Gospel, it has long been the custom to stand in attentive reverence to hear these words. We believe that Christ is present in his word, since it is he himself who speaks when the holy Scriptures are read in the church (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, #7). Gospel Reading The deacon or priest if there is no deacon will again greet us with The Lord be with you. He then introduces the Gospel reading while marking a small cross on his forehead, lips and heart with his thumb while praying silently that God cleans his mind and his heart so that his lips may worthily proclaim the Gospel. The congregation also performs this ritual action along with the priest. The Gospel reading concludes with the ritual formula The Gospel of the Lord and we respond, Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ, again proclaiming our faith in the presence of Christ in the word. Then we sit for the homily.
23 Liturgy of the Word Homily A homily and sermon have subtle differences. - A homily explains a passage of scripture and gives practical applications. The homily takes the word just proclaimed and brings it to our life situation today. Just as a large piece of bread is broken to feed individual persons, the word of God must be broken open so it can be received and digested by the congregation. - A sermon develops a point of doctrine or morals in a systematic way. Silence The homily is often followed by a few moments of silence during which we each thank God for the word we have heard and apply the message of today s readings to our daily living.
24 Profession of Faith Profession of Faith - Nicene Creed page 110 The creed is more than a list of things, which we believe. It is a statement of our faith in the word we have heard proclaimed in the Scripture and the homily, and a profession of the faith that leads us to give our lives for one another as Christ gave his life for us. General Intercessions (Prayers of the Faithful) page 112 The General Intercessions help us become who God is calling us to be. We are the Body of Christ by Baptism. We pray that our assembly really comes to look like the Body of Christ, a body at peace, with shelter for the homeless, healing for the sick, food for the hungry. We pray for the Church, nations and their leaders, people in special need and the local needs of our parish the petitions usually fall into these four categories. A minister will announce the petitions, and we are usually given an opportunity to pray for the intentions in our heart, making some common response aloud like, Lord, hear our prayer.
25 Liturgy of the Eucharist After the readings, the Liturgy of the Word, we move to the table. As at a meal in the home of a friend, we: 1) set the table 2) say grace 3) share the food (we eat and drink). At Mass these ritual actions are called: 1) the Preparation of the Gifts 2) the Eucharistic Prayer 3) the Communion Rite.
26 Liturgy of the Eucharist Preparation of the Altar and of the Gifts Prayer over the Gifts Eucharistic Prayer Preface Preface Acclamation: Holy Holy Holy Eucharistic prayer Memorial Acclamation Communion Rite Lord s Prayer Rite of Peace Breaking of the Bread Lamb of God Communion Prayer after Communion Eucharistic Prayer Doxology Great Amen
27 Liturgy of the Eucharist Preparation of Altar / Presentation of the Gifts pg 114 The priest prepares the altar and the gifts, prays over the bread and wine, and helps the assembly to prepare for the tremendous sacrifice that will take place Preparation of the Altar Preparation of the Bread Preparation of the Wine Washing of Hands Invitation to Prayer pg 114 Pray brethren that my sacrifice and yours, may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father We respond: May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his Holy Church. Prayer over the Gifts pages
28 Eucharistic Prayer The center and high point of the Mass that makes Christ present for us in His Passion, Death, and Resurrection. During it, the entire assembly joins Christ in acknowledging the works of God and in the offering of Sacrifice. While the words of the prayer may vary from Sunday to Sunday, the prayer always has this structure: 1) We call upon God to remember all the wonderful saving deeds of our history. 2) We recall the central event in our history, Jesus Christ, and in particular the memorial he left us on the night before he died. We recall his passion, death and resurrection. 3) After gratefully calling to mind all the wonderful saving acts God has done for us in the past, we petition God to continue those deeds of Christ in the present: We pray that we may become one body, one spirit in Christ.
29 Eucharistic Prayer Preface Dialogue page 120 The prayer begins with a dialogue between the priest and the assembly. First, the priest greets us with The Lord be with you. He then asks if we are ready and willing to approach the table and to renew our baptismal commitment, offering ourselves to God: Lift up your hearts. And we say that we are prepared to do so: We lift them up to the Lord. We are invited to give thanks to the Lord our God. And we respond: It is right and just. To give thanks and praise translates the traditional Greek verb which now names the whole action: Eucharist. Preface page In the preface, the Church gives thanks to the Father, through Christ, in the Holy Spirit, for all his works: creation, redemption, and sanctification. The whole community thus joins in the unending praise with the Church in heaven, the angels and all the saints.. Preface Acclamation Holy, Holy, Holy (Sanctus) page 122 KNEEL
30 Eucharistic Prayer Eucharistic Prayer page Epiclesis In the epiclesis, the Church asks the Father to send his Holy Spirit (or the power of his blessing) on the bread and wine, so that by his power they may become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and so that those who take part in the Eucharist may be one body and one spirit Institution - Narrative and Consecration In the institution narrative, the power of the words and the action of Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, make sacramentally present under the species of bread and wine Christ's body and blood, his sacrifice offered on the cross once for all.
31 Eucharistic Prayer Memorial Acclamation - page 132 When we eat this bread and drink this cup we proclaim your death, O Lord, until you come again Continuation of Eucharistic Prayer: pages The Church calls to mind the Passion, resurrection, and glorious return of Christ Jesus; she presents to the Father the offering of his Son which reconciles us with him. The Church indicates that the Eucharist is celebrated in communion with the whole Church in heaven and on earth, the living and the dead, and in communion with the Pope, the diocesan bishop, his priests and his deacons, and all the bishops of the whole world together with their Churches. Final Doxology page 142 Through him, and with him, and in him, O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, for ever and ever. Great Amen STAND
32 Communion Rite The Lord's Prayer page 142 We prepare to eat and drink at the Lords table with those words taught us by Jesus: Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Rite of Peace (Sign of Peace) page 144 Aware that communion (the word means union with ) is the sign and source of our reconciliation and union with God and with one another, we make a gesture of union and forgiveness with those around us and offer them a sign of peace. Fraction Rite / Breaking of the Bread /Commingling 144 He prays silently, May the mingling of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ bring eternal life to us who receive it. Symbolizes the Resurrection. Symbolizes the unity of the Church. page Lamb of God (Agnus Dei) page 144 Kneel
33 Rite of Communion
34 Rite of Communion Invitation to Communion page 144 The priest then shows us the Body of Christ and invites us to come to the table: Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb. We respond: Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed. Communion page 144 As God fed our ancestors in the desert on their pilgrimage, so God gives us food for our journey. We approach the minister who gives us the Eucharistic bread with the words The Body of Christ, and we respond, Amen. We then go to the minister with the cup who gives it to us with the words The Blood of Christ, to which we again profess our Amen. During this procession we usually sing a hymn, which unites our voices, minds and thoughts, even as the Body and Blood of Christ unites our bodies. Then we pray silently in our hearts, thanking and praising God and asking for all that this sacrament promises. Silent Prayer SIT
35 Prayer After Communion Prayer after Communion pages This prayer speaks to the graces we have just received from the Body and Blood of Christ. The priest unites our prayers in the Prayer After Communion, to which we respond, Amen.
36 Come early Stay late Concluding Rite Just as the people were greeted at the beginning of the Mass, so now the priest greets the people again and blesses them in one of several forms STAND Blessing page 158 The priest says, The Lord be with you the ritual phrase serves now as a farewell. We bow our heads to receive a blessing. As the priest gives us a final blessing in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit we make the sign of the cross. Dismissal page 158 The priest or deacon then dismisses the assembly: Go in peace and we give our liturgical yes by saying, Thanks be to God.
