At Mass We are Part of the Heavenly Court

A Catholic Hart posted a link to a Spirit Daily article reminding us that at Mass we are part of the Heavenly Court. At Mass, there are a multitude of angels present giving praise and glory to God. It is the highest form of all worship. The veil between Heaven and Earth is the narrowest during the Holy Mass.

I note the article especially mentions the presence of Archangel Michael who is the protector of The Church. One of the many senseless changes they made when they restructured (shredded) the Liturgy after Vatican II was to remove the prayer to St. Michael The Archangel at the close of each Mass.

Sometimes, at least when I remember to, I pray the prayer to St. Michael after Mass by myself. I don't think the Church should have gotten rid of the prayer.

Since I've already made a couple of comments tonight regarding the Mass, I might as well tell you I'm currently working on the first draft of a post about that subject. Should be ready in a day or two.

Also you might like to read this post about the liturgical changes on New Advent: http://home.newadvent.org/2006/07/archbishop_malc.html
