"Since such is the nature of man that he cannot easily without external means be raised to meditation on divine things, on that account holy Mother Church has instituted certain rites, namely that certain things be pronounced in a subdued tone (canon and words of consecration) and others in a louder tone; she has likewise made use of ceremonies such as mystical blessings, lights, incense, vestments, and many other things of this kind in accordance with apostolic teaching and tradition, whereby both the majesty of so great a sacrifice might be commended, and the minds of the faithful excited by these visible signs of religion and piety to the contemplation of the most sublime matters which are hidden in this sacrifice."
— Council of Trent (Session XXII)

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?
