Eucharist

“Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb” (Revelation, 19.9)
The Eucharist contains all of the spiritual treasures of the Church, Christ Himself, our Easter.[…] It is the centre and the height of the entire Christian life […] Word liturgy and Eucharistic liturgy are tightly joint, so that they make a single worship act. […] Christian communities cannot grow without finding their reason and centre in the Eucharistic function.

Offerings

Mass has no price, but since ancient times, believers have wished to take part in the Eucharist with natural gifts and money offerings. These are used to answer to the needs of worship, clerical and Church life.
This tradition explains the origin of the Mass “Honorari” practice, which dates back to the VIII century and is based on the Old Testament, where we can read that the priest used to receive a part of the sacrifices offered to God. The priest should be able to live on the altar. The Canon Law legitimates (can. 945) and regulates (can. 946 and following) this tradition.
Material life of Church and clergy relies also on this kind of spontaneous contributes by the believers.
Our religious community can celebrate:

  • a novena, consisting in nine consecutive daily celebrations, with a proposed offer of 150 Euros.
  • A Gregorian cycle, consisting in thirty consecutive daily functions, with a proposed offer of 500 Euros.

Having particular intentions of prayer during a Mass

Eucharistic sacrifice is offered to anybody. The Church allows believers to join this Mass sacrifice in a more intimate way, through a particular intention of prayer, expressed to the celebrant. Intentions of prayer can be expressed for:

  • living people
  • the dead
  • gratefulness for a marriage
  • marriage anniversaries
  • baptisms
  • child birth
  • birthday
  • ill people, recovery, people in trouble
  • particular intentions (it is allowed not to specify it because of discretion)
