Mass in a Moment

By Margaret Bick

 

 The Sprinkling and Penitential Rites

 

Dying Christ destroyed our death; rising he restored our life.  This the cornerstone of our faith and the cause of our celebration.

 

        St. Paul says that we must consider ourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

 

        The liturgy offers us two possibilities for bringing this mystery of faith into sharper focus from the very beginning of Mass: in the “Lord have mercy” we recall that God’s unconditional love and mercy sent Jesus to bring us to fullness of life with God and each other;

 

        In the rite of blessing and sprinking holy water we recall the eternal newness of the divine life we have shared since our Baptism. 

 

        May almighty God continue to have mercy on us, forgive our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.
