Today’s Bored at Mass feature: Where did the Mass come from?
The Mass finds its origins 2,000 years ago, at the Last Supper, when Jesus and His disciples celebrated the Passover meal. “Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, ‘Take, eat; this is my body…’” (see Matthew 26:26-28). Jesus reminded the disciples, “Do this in remembrance of me” (1 Corinthians 11: 24, 25). Jesus’ followers then began to celebrate the sacrifice of the Mass, culminating in the Holy Eucharist as Jesus instructed them to do…and the celebration has continued to this day in the Catholic Church.
