The favors of Mass...

"If we really understood the Mass, 
we would die of joy."- St John Vianney

"No human tongue can enumerate the favors
that trace back to the Sacrifice of the Mass.

The sinner is reconciled with God;
the just man becomes more upright;
sins are wiped away; vices uprooted;
virtue and merit increase;
and the devil's schemes are frustrated."

St Lawrence Justinian

Invite someone to Mass during this
Lenten season and enumerate its favors!

  1. Do you know a source for the depiction of the mass in the above painting? Trying to locate a high-resolution version, original artist, etc.
