Twenty-Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time
THE CELEBRATION OF THE CATHOLIC MASS
Parts and Prayers of the
Catholic Mass
Spiritual Preparation Prior to
Mass
Church is a sacred place.
Vestments
Introductory Rite
In the name of the Father and of
the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Penitential Service
Gloria
The “Collect”
Liturgy of the Word
Three Readings on Sundays
The First Reading is taken from the
Old Testament. The Second Reading
is usually taken from Acts and
Letters and Revelation. The Third
Reading is taken from one of the
Gospels.
Homily
Nicene Creed
Prayer of the Faithful
Collection
Explanation and what you need to do so that your
gratitude for the Eucharist and your worship become
more spiritually meaningful.
- Review the Mass Readings.
- While driving to Church, say the Act of Contrition and a decade
of the Rosary.
- Arrive at least 10 minutes before the Mass.
- St. Thomas Aquinas said, “One hour before Mass the angels
gather above the altar in anticipation for the Holy Sacrifice.”
Worship Him in silence.
-The priest wears different colors according to the liturgical season: Green for Ordinary Time; Purple for Advent & Lent; White
for Christmas & Easter
- The priest wears a white Alb signifying his Baptism. The Stoll
he wears signifies his priestly authority. The Chasuble he wears
signifies his charity and acting in persona Christi.
- We surrender our intellect, strength and will to the Trinitarian
God.
- Our sins are offered to the Lord. We ask pardon from Him and
from the people around us.
- This is the song that the angels sang at the birth of Christ. It is
sung now because the Lord is going to be born again, here at
the altar.
- The Priest, as the president of the congregation, brings the
prayers of the people to God.
- God is speaking directly to you. Listen – don’t just hear. There
will be an answer to your prayers in these Readings.
- The Lord speaks to the priest and the priest addresses the
community, breaking down the Word of the Lord.
- The Creed is the Profession of Faith, originating in the fourth
century. It is what all Catholics believe in. There are 12 Articles
of Faith in the Creed.
- Offer your intentions here.
- Scripture asks us to return to the Lord 10 percent of what we
have already been given. What you give is used to spread the
Good News.
