The word Mass means 'to be sent forth' and we are sent forth from the Eucharist to live as Jesus did, to share His love with others and to serve others. Through a common religious experience on Pentecost, the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and realized beyond a doubt that Jesus was truly the Messiah. They recalled how Jesus had taken bread and wine and blessed it and gave it to them saying, "Take this and eat it...this is my body" and "Do this in remembrance of Me." Whenever they got together is was called the "Breaking of the Bread." These gatherings in faith have continued to this day and have now become the "Mass," our celebration of the Eucharist.
