When Jesus was crucified, very few people stood at the foot of the cross.
Those who did gave Jesus comfort by their presence.
The Catholic Mass is your opportunity to stand at the foot of the cross;
your opportunity to give Jesus comfort by your presence.
Remember, only you can give Jesus your love and comfort.
As the Catechism of the Catholic Church says:
[Each and every human being] is called by grace to a covenant with his Creator,
to offer him a response of faith and love that
no other creature can give in his stead.
