A Letter from Fr. Emmanuel

Why is the Mass so Important to Catholics?

09-16-2018Rev. Emmanuel I. Ihemedu

After the Sign of the Cross, the priest says the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ… be with you all,” and the congregation says: “And with your spirit.” This means that Christ is present in our midst. Scripture says “for where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Matthew 18:20).
