"The Mass…is a participation in this theophany"–Pope Francis

This is a syndicated post from The Chant Café. [Read the original article...]

“When we celebrate the Mass, we don’t accomplish a representation of the Last Supper: no, it is not a representation. It is something else: it is the Last Supper itself. It is to really live once more the Passion and the redeeming Death of the Lord. It is a theophany: the Lord is made present on the altar to be offered to the Father for the salvation of the world. The Mass…is participated in, and it is a participation in this theophany, in this mystery of the presence of the Lord among us.”

Pope Francis, this morning.
