This, therefore explains why the Mass is the center of all things, because there the one, full final sacrifice of Christ is brought into the present moment.
There that one answer is given to the world again and again on countless altars around the world.
There in chapels and churches, in humble huts and grand cathedrals, at the hospital bedside or the front line of battle the world’s one hope is offered.
There the answer is given not as an intellectual proposition, but as an eternal action.
There the cross is lifted high and there the evangelical message is proclaimed that Christ and his cross is now and forever, the answer, the solution and the center of all things.
