Mass (liturgy)
A 15th-century MassDepiction of the first Mass in Chile, by Pedro Subercaseaux
"
Mass
" is one of the names by which the sacrament of theEucharistis called in theRoman Catholic Church: others are "Eucharist", the "Lord's Supper", the "Breaking of Bread", the"Eucharistic assembly (synaxis)", the "memorial of the Lord's Passion and Resurrection", the"Holy Sacrifice", the "Holy and Divine Liturgy" and "Holy Communion".[1]The term "Mass" is one of the most common in connection withCatholicLatin liturgical rites. It is used also of similar celebrations inOld Catholic Churches, in theAnglo-Catholictradition ofAnglicanism, inWestern Rite Orthodox Churches, and in someLutheran churches. For the celebration of the Eucharist inEastern churches,includingthoseinfull communionwith theHoly See, other terms such as the
, the
 and the
are normal. Most
 
Western denominations not in full communion with the RomanCatholic Churchalso usuallyprefer terms other than "Mass".For information on the theology of the Eucharist and on the Eucharistic liturgy ofotherChristiandenominations, see "Eucharist" and "Eucharistic theology". For information on history seeEucharistandOrigin of the Eucharist, and with specific regard to theRoman RiteMass,Pre-Tridentine MassandTridentine Mass. The term "Mass" is derived from theLate Latinword
missa 
(dismissal), a word used in theconcluding formula of Mass in Latin:
("Go; it is the dismissal").
"Inantiquity,
missa 
simply meant 'dismissal'. In Christian usage, however, it gradually took on adeeper meaning. The word 'dismissal' has come to imply a 'mission'. These few wordssuccinctly express the missionary nature of the Church" (Pope Benedict XVI,
Mass in the Roman Catholic Church
TheCouncil of Trentreaffirmed traditional Christian teaching that the Mass is the sameSacrifice ofCalvaryoffered in an unbloody manner: "The victim is one and the same: thesame now offers through the ministry ofpriests, who then offered himself on the cross; onlythe manner of offering is different. And since in this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in theMass, the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the crossis contained and offered in an unbloody manner... this sacrifice is truly propitiatory" (
Doctrina de ss. Missae sacrificio 
, c. 2, quoted in
Catechism of the Catholic Church 
, 1367). The Councildeclared thatJesusinstituted the Mass at hisLast Supper: "He offered up to God the Father His own body andbloodunder the species of bread andwine; and, under the symbols of those same things, He delivered (His own body and blood) to be received by His apostles,whom He then constituted priests of the New Testament; and by those words, Do this incommemoration of me, He commanded them and their successors in the priesthood,tooffer(them); even as the Catholic Church has always understood and taught."[4] The Catholic Church sees the Mass as the most perfect way it has to offerlatria(adoration) toGod. The Church believes that "The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministriesand works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it."[5]Itis also Catholic belief that in objective reality, not merely symbolically, the wheaten bread andgrape wine are converted into Christ's body and blood, a conversion referred toastransubstantiation, so that the whole Christ, body and blood, soul and divinity, is truly,really, and substantially contained in the sacrament of the Eucharist.[6]

TheRoman Missalcontains theprayers,antiphonsandrubricsof the Mass. Earlier editions also contained the Scripture readings, which were then fewer in number. The latest edition ofthe Roman Missal gives the normal ("ordinary") form of Mass in the Roman Rite.[8]But, inaccordance with the conditions laid down in themotu proprio
