“Although the Mass contains much instruction for the faithful, it has nevertheless not seemed expedient to the fathers that it be celebrated everywhere in the vernacular. The holy synod commands pastors and everyone who has the care of souls to explain frequently during the celebration of the Masses, either themselves or through others, some of the things that are read in the Mass, and among other things to expound some mystery of this most Holy Sacrifice, especially on Sundays and feastdays.”
— Council of Trent, XII:8 (1562)

Video • The Altar Server “Must See”
published 25 February 2016 by Andrew Leung

NE OF MY DUTIES as a seminarian is to serve Masses at the parish. Altar serving is such an important and meaningful liturgical ministry. I have been doing it for fifteen years now and it helps me a lot in my spiritual growth. This video that I am sharing today was published in 2013, but I just saw it for the first time. I agree with everything he says and I hope you do too.



I hope you enjoy this video. While this video gives us a lot of insights about altar serving, it also helps us to reflect on our relationships with God. Here are some questions we can ask ourselves:

- Am I acting reverently and actively participating in my role at Mass?

- Do I dress up appropriately and worthily when I attend Mass?

- Do I pray everyday? Or do I only show up to Mass on Sundays?
