.- The Archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne, said this week in order for participation in Sunday Mass to be central for all the baptized, it will always be necessary to deepen understanding of the Eucharist.
During his weekly program, “Dialogue of Faith,” the Cardinal explained that the Mass “is the visit Jesus Christ makes to us, it is the invitation to live anew that which is most important in our life; through the Word of God, through the offering of His life He makes to the Father, through His death on the Cross and His Resurrection.”
“By participating in the Sunday Mass we experience an important, vital and central part of our lives,” Cardinal Cipriani said. Therefore, for Catholics, the Holy Mass and the Eucharist can only be spoken of on our knees, in silence, and with respect. The contrary is called blasphemy,” he said.
