Finally, an app that has people understanding what the Mass is all about. Even if we participate in the Mass weekly, we may find ourselves asking questions such as: What does the Mass mean? And what can it mean for me? Why do we "strike our breasts" during the Confiteor? What does the entrance procession symbolize? Where does "under my roof" come from? What do words like "consubstantial" and "incarnate" mean? Catechists and parents need to answer questions from children wondering what the priest is doing or what specific words we say at Mass mean.
