Mass in a Moment

By Margaret Bick


Keeping Sunday Holy


Daily Mass is a privileged means of reinforcing the eucharistic character of Christian life.  But it is the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist that shapes the very life of the Church.

In his pastoral letter, Dies Domini, “The Lord’s Day,” Pope John Paul II draws attention to the pre-eminence of the Sunday Eucharist.

Nothing can adequately substitute for our full, conscious and active participation in the Sunday Eucharist.  But the Pope goes on to say that participation in the Eucharist must be supported by and in everything else we do on the Lord’s Day.

Keeping the Lord’s Day holy means making it a day of joy, rest and fellowship both for ourselves and for those whose lives we touch. 

Let us open wide the doors to Christ and live every Sunday as truly the Lord’s Day.
