If you ever feel bored at Mass or think that you don't get much out of it, this talk is for you.
Most Reverend Alexander K. Sample, Archbishop of Portland, provides theological and practical reasons why we need to come to a deeper understanding of the nature of the Mass. By understanding the Mass as a sacrifice and a sacred banquet, we can tap into the transforming power offered whenever we worship.

it was clear and specific. He mentioned every point...thanks
In this era when so many parish communities treat the Mass as a social gathering to share the meal of the Lord" Archbishop Sample's talk gives us the proper understanding that the Mass is the true sacrifice of Jesus on the altar of the cross and that understanding is clearly supported by both Scripture and the documents of Vatican II."
The discussion about the sacrifice of the Mass, and how it's the actual presentation of Jesus' sacrifice again is interesting.
