I was once asked to explain what a mass card was to someone and that made me realize that I wasn't all too sure of it's significance myself. What is the theology behind it? How did it get started? Where does it fit in? These were the questions which plagued my mind. So I set out to enrich my faith life so that I could in turn do the same for others. What I found was a fascinating blog post by Bishop Thomas Dowd in which he answered all of my questions. After I read it I could not wait to share what I had learned, so, you can find in a printable PDF at the button below. It is my hope that you get as much out of this article as I did.
