All over the world, Mass is celebrated daily in our Catholic churches.  The focal points are the altar and the tabernacle.  Here is what one of our great saints, the Patron Saint of all Priests, has to say about the altar:

“This altar is like the womb of Mary where a God becomes incarnate each day in the hands of the priest; the manger where He is born a second time; Calvary where He immolates Himself; a second heaven where He sits at the right hand of His Father to be our Mediator. How, at the sight of so many benefits on the part of God, should we not feel our hearts burn and melt with love before this altar, as wax before the fire.”

Saint John Vianney
