This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

The Mass as sacrifice

The Mass is a true sacrifice, and this means that when differentiating the Catholic Mass from the Protestant “worship service,” the two should be seen as apples and oranges. They are not two styles of trying to accomplishing the same thing, but are geared toward entirely different purposes. It is a difference of kind.

That the Mass is a sacrifice is stated clearly in its full name: The Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

The Mass includes an element of praise, and so it contains as one of its components what for Evangelicals is the entirety of the service. This will become clear when we outline the parts of the liturgy as it unfolds during each performance.
