Living the Mass the Other Six Days of the Week: The Penitential Act

Living the Mass the Other Six Days of the Week

During the National Eucharistic Revival, let’s look at the parts of the Mass to reflect on what each part is calling us to do and be the other six days of the week. In this episode, we look at the Penitential Act, through which we acknowledge that we are sinners and ask for God’s forgiveness. We consider how the Penitential Act of the Mass calls us to embrace our brokenness and open ourselves up to salvation.

Be sure to check out my book, Living the Mass: How One Hour a Week Can Change Your Life, co-authored with Fr. Dominic Grassi. Likewise, check out this video compilation of Pop-Up Catechesis episodes in which we do a Walk Through the Mass and this webinar I did with Fr. Grassi on Living the Mass.
