Why We Find Livestream Masses So Unsatisfying

Comment from DBSP: This article makes a very good point – we Catholic Christians are people of the Incarnation – Christ come in the Flesh and who wants to remain with us tangibly, in our flesh.  We are Sacrament people: those gifts from Jesus Himself that make visible all those realities that are invisible.  We live fully human lives and our holy Faith brings to us the Divine through very human means: food, touch, words, and signs.  The greatest of these is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass which puts us there at the Last Supper, at Calvary, and at the Empty Tomb – REALLY, not figuratively.  While its value, in and of itself, is inestimable, there is something incomplete about it when Christ cannot be tangibly present to His Faithful in His Most Sacred Body and His Most Precious Blood.  What a blessed day it will be when we can finally receive again Christ and His Holy Spirit in tangible form through the ministry of our Priests in this and all our Sacraments.

Holy Mass from Don Bosco Prep 3/15/2020

Let us pray together as Church even if we cannot receive Holy Communion and may this inability to receive Him Sacramentally but increase our love and devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, longing for the day when we can again receive His Most Sacred Body and Most Precious Blood. Peace and health to you all.  And let us heed the words of St. John Bosco, as reported in Volume V of the Biographical Memoirs in Chapters 9 & 10: “ACCORDING to Father Rua, Don Bosco had told the Oratory boys in May 1854 that a disastrous outbreak of cholera would strike Turin. However, he had added: “Don’t worry. Do as I say and you will all be safe.” “What are we to do?” they all asked. “Avoid sin, wear the medal of the Blessed Virgin which I will bless and give to each of you, recite daily the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, and prayer to St. Aloysius, and say: ‘From every evil, deliver us, 0 Lord.’ “… Today is the feast of Our Lady of the Snow, and tomorrow we will begin one of the most solemn novenas in honor of the Blessed Virgin. The approaching feast...
