What is the Mass?

In the Mass, what was the symbol of the Old Passover becomes the reality of the New Covenant.
But this meal / sacrifice, with "one foot in time and one foot in eternity", is much more than this, Father Ernset Simmons explains.
It actually enables us to participate in Christ's sacrifice on Calvary, making it possible for us to contribute to the redemption and salvation of mankind in union with Jesus.
