When you hear Holy Mass devoutly, offering it to Almighty God in honor of any particular Saint or Angel, thanking God for the favors bestowed on him, etc., you afford that Saint or Angel a new degree of honor, joy and happiness, and draw his special love and protection on yourself.
Every time you assist at Holy Mass, besides other intentions, you should offer it in honor of the Saint of the day.
In holy Mass, in obedience to Christ’s command, “Do this in remembrance of me,” we of the Church offer perfect praise to the heavenly Father, and sanctify ourselves and the world by the power that flows from the priestly office of our eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ.
The benefits of even one holy Mass are infinite and include the whole world. The blood of the new and everlasting covenant was “shed for you and for all.”
In every Mass that is offered the Church remembers before God “those who take part in this offering, those here present and all your people, and all who seek you with a sincere heart.” In a special way those who have holy Mass offered and those for whom a Mass is offered partake of the grace of the Eucharistic sacrifice.
The Church which offers Mass each day includes not only the faithful on earth, but the saints in heaven, as well as the suffering souls still awaiting entrance into heaven.
“The Mass is the most perfect form of prayer!” Pope Paul VI

“When we receive Holy Communion, we experience something extraordinary – a joy, a fragrance, a well being that thrills the whole body and causes it to exalt.”
Saint Jean Vianney
“If we really understood the Mass, we would die of joy.” Saint Jean Vianney
