Because the Mass is the highest form of worship on Earth, there are many fruits and graces that result from having a Mass said. The reason that this tradition has been passed on for centuries is because of the many spiritual fruits that result from this form of prayer. The celebration of the Eucharist is the highest form of worship in the Catholic Church because we unite ourselves with Christ’s sacrifice on the cross in worship of his Father.
St. John Paul II emphasized the graces that come when a Mass is offered. “The Church believes that she will be heard, for she prays in union with Christ her Head and Spouse, who takes up this plea of His Bride and joins it to His own redemptive sacrifice.”
It’s not a long or difficult process to request a Mass. A Mass can be offered for a person who is still living. You can have a Mass said in Thanksgiving or for a celebration. It is customary to give an offering when requesting a Mass for an intention, and in the Diocese of Buffalo, $15 is the recommended offering.
