Traditional Mass

The ends of the sacrifice are the same. The first is to give glory to the heavenly Father. The life of Christ from birth to death was a continuous hymn of praise to the Father. To perpetrate this praise the members of the Mystical Body are united with their divine Head in the Eucharistic Sacrifice, and with Him, together with the angels and archangels, they offer praise and honor and glory to the Father Almighty.
