I'm going to Calvary in a few minutes

It seems to me that although there's a lot you can say about the Mass, the most important thing you can say about it is that it is the sacrifice of Christ on the cross on Mount Calvary.

This seems to make our religion unique.

Most religions I know about have very important events which happened sometime in history associated with them.  If you asked any believers in those faiths if they were there for the events, they would have to reply no, they happened before they were born.  We, of course, say yes, we were at Calvary, the last time we were at Mass.

At Calvary the sacrifice of Jesus Christ was a very bloody event; the Mass is the sacrifice of Christ presented before us in an unbloody manner, thank God.

Must close; I've got to go back to Calvary.
