Scattering its splendors on all...

  "Come, Thou, bread of angels 
and satisfy the cravings of my soul..." 
St Leonard of Port Maurice

"Mass is the sun of the human race,
scattering its spelndors 
over good and wicked;
nor is there a soul so vile on earth who,
hearing holy Mass, doth not carry from it
some great good, often without asking,
often without even thinking of it."

According to St Leonard of Port Maurice 
these benefits apply to the priests who celebrate Mass, 
to the acolytes who serve the Mass,
and to the faithful who hear Mass with devotion.
So too hardened sinners will benefit from attending Mass.
