A History Of The Mass And Its Ceremonies In The Eastern And Western Church -Rev John O'Brien A.M.

WE have now come to the most sacred portion of the entire Mass—sacred by reason of its great antiquity, for it carries us away back to the days of the apostles; and doubly sacred because it contains those blessed words uttered by our Divine Redeemer at the Last Supper, in virtue of which the bread and wine are changed into his own Body and Blood. For the latter reason alone the Canon should be treated of on bended knees.
