The Mass: Do this . . . .

DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME. In loving obedience to the command of the Lord Jesus, the universal Church has — for two millenia — continually celebrated the holy sacrifice of the Mass. Accordingly, gathering for the Mass is the central act of worship at Ascension and Saint Agnes.

High Mass, the norm of western catholic worship, is celebrated on Sundays and other holy days with three sacred ministers, incense, and a full complement of servers, cantor, choir, and organ. The choir offers Mass settings from the rich and varied canon of western liturgical music. Low Masses are celebrated seven days a week throughout the year

Elevation, Easter pontifical mass

I AM THE FOOD OF THE FULL-GROWN; grow, and thou shalt feed on Me. Nor shalt thou change Me into thy substance as thou changest food to thy flesh, but thou shalt be changed into Mine.

Cibus sum grandium; cresce et manducabis Me.
Nec tu me in te mutabis sicut cibum carnis tuae, sed tu mutaberis in me.

— in St. Augustine of Hippo, Confessions, Book VII, Chapter 10.
