Altaration addresses head-on one of the biggest problems we all face: how do we get Catholic teens to appreciate the awesome beauty and mystery of the Mass…and to actually look forward to attending and participating?
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the same yesterday, today and forever. During the liturgy of the Eucharist all of heaven is with the Priest. Think of John, Mary Magdalene, and Mary at the foot of the cross during the Most Holy Sacrifice. Now imagine how the Saints and Cherubim are worshiping during the Mass. Next try to interiorize what is happening in Heaven around the Priest during the Mass. How awesome and profound is that? So the next time you attend Mass, enter into this profound Mystery/ Miracle with this knowledge. The Mass doesn't get any cooler than that!
Through a unique learning experience, including powerful cinematography and workbook resources, teens will come to see the Mass and the priesthood in a dramatically new way. Altaration is designed to stir thought, create conversation, dispel myths, and inspire young souls to a deep and lasting love for the Mass. The goal of Altaration is not to fill teens’ heads with information but to pierce their hearts with transformation.
