Saint Gertrude the Great once reported that for each and every Mass that we hear with devotion during our lives, Christ sends a saint to comfort us in death. I was deeply moved the first time I read this. Intellectually, I know that great value of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass – it is the solemn re-presentation of our Lord Jesus Christ to the Father in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. I recently came across 10 quotes from the saints about the importance of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. When the Eucharist is being celebrated, the sanctuary is filled with countless angels who adore the divine victim immolated on the altar. When we receive Holy Communion, we experience something extraordinary – a joy, a fragrance, a well-being that thrills the whole body and causes it to exalt. When we have been to Holy Communion, the balm of love envelops the soul as the flower envelops the bee.
