Approaching Christ in the Mass


Living Faith with Fr Richard Umbers

“We who consider ourselves righteous… we can be so filled with our own selves that we can be very, very far away from You, Lord… even though ostensibly we’re there for your sake.”

How do we approach our Lord who makes Himself present to us in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? Are we like David, growing lazy, giving way to distractions? Are we like Simon the Pharisee, always ready to judge, but failing to pay Christ the reverence and love that is due to Him? Fr Richard Umbers reflects on how we can grow in relationship with Christ through proper preparation for Mass.
