Book : Our Hearts At Sunday Mass

Our Hearts At Sunday Mass

Book : Our Hearts At Sunday Mass – 10 Steps to a Joyful Life

  • Are you a parent concerned that your older children are not going to Sunday Mass?
  • Are you a teacher looking for a good resource that explains the Mass?
  • Are you a participant in the RCIA and want to learn more about the Mass?
  • Are you a teen wondering why you are supposed to go to Mass?
  • Do you go to Mass only at Christmas and Easter?
  • Are you a non-Catholic seeking understanding of your spouse’s Catholic faith?
  • Are you looking for a richer spiritual life?

Then this is the book for you.

Our Hearts At Sunday Mass written by Fr. Alan Phillip

“Through this book I’ve come to realize the true meaning of Mass, and how it carries the true message of God’s love, compassion and mercy. All through my youth I saw Mass as a chore. Later, I went and tried to connect with God. It didn’t work. I didn’t know what I was looking for. I stopped attending. After five years, I read this book and truly understand the message that Mass conveys and how it carries over to my life throughout the week. I found insight to appreciate Mass and carry God’s message in my daily life. — Luis Esquivel, Anaheim, CA

Perhaps you thought that participation in Sunday Mass took only about an hour or so.  My book explains how participation in Mass is a way of life.  What we do at Mass is intended to form and shape our thoughts, words and actions all day, everyday, all week long, all year long, and all life long.

The chapter titles list the ten steps that our hearts take on the journey to joy.

1. A Humble Heart
2. A Forgiving Heart
3. A Welcoming Heart
4. A Listening Heart
5. An Asking Heart
6. A Grateful Heart
7. A Transformed Heart
8. A Committed Heart
9. A Serving Heart
10. A Compassionate Heart

Quotes on Holy Mass

  • “The Mass is the most perfect form of prayer!” – (Pope Paul VI)
  • For each Mass we hear with devotion, Our Lord sends a saint to comfort us at death (revelation of Christ to St. Gertrude the great).
  • Padre Pio, the stigmatic priest, said, the world could exist more easily without the sun than without the Mass.
  • The Cure’ d’ Ars, St. Jean Vianney said, if we knew the value of the Mass we would die of joy.
  • A great doctor of the Church, St. Anselm, declares that a single Mass offered for oneself during life may be worth more than a thousand celebrated for the same intention after death. St. Leonard of Port Maurice supports this statement by saying that one Mass before death may be more profitable than many after it.
  • “The Holy Mass would be of greater profit if people had it offered in their lifetime, rather than having it celebrated for the relief of their souls after death.” (Pope Benedict XV).
  • Once, St. Teresa was overwhelmed with God’s Goodness and asked Our Lord, “How can I thank you?” Our Lord replied, “ATTEND ONE MASS.”
  • The Blessed Virgin Mary once told Her faithful servant Alain: “My Son so loves those who assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that, if it were necessary He would die for them as many times as they’ve heard Masses.”(Page 107, last paragraph of “Explication Du Saint Sacrifice De La Messe” parle R.P. Martin de Cochem Friere – Mineur Capucin.)
We are not alone when we attend the Holy Mass. We are accompanied by all the angels in Heaven, all the saints, and all the souls in purgatory who are waiting for our prayers to reach heaven. I had never known that attending the Holy Mass is so important. I hope all of you now have a clear picture of how important Holy Mass is.
Let us try our level best to take part in the Holy Mass not only on Sundays, but on every day of our remaining life on this earth. May our Almighty Lord help us in making this bold decision and in carrying it out.
