Statue of Saint Dominic in the Church of Santa Sabina in Rome

Today's Quote:

The Sacrifice of the Mass is and remains the center of the Christian Religion, the sum of spiritual exercises, the heart of devotion and the soul of piety. Hence that ever-new, never-failing power by which the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass attracts all Catholic hearts and gathers Catholic nations around its altars. Everywhere the Holy Mass retains this magnetic power of attraction.... The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the soul and the heart of the liturgy of the Church; it is the mystical chalice that presents to our lips the sweet fruit of the passion of the God-Man -- this is, grace.

      - Father Nicholas Gihr, The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
