Q: What is the difference between TV Mass and participating in person?
There is a tremendous difference between participating in Mass broadcast on television or seen on the Internet and actually being present at the Liturgy. Although in watching a live or recorded transmission of Mass we certainly hear God's Word and are inspired to pray and be aware of the Lord's presence in His Body, the Church, nothing can replace being in the midst of Christ in the worshiping assembly and receiving the Lord's precious Body and Blood.
Still, the the television or otherwise transmitted liturgy (or any gathering for worship for that matter) serves a great purpose. Especially for those who are prevented from physically participating at Mass, this kind of presentation keeps them connected and nourishes their Faith. Even for those who choose not to practice their Faith or who are not themselves Catholic, the Mass on television or the Internet is both catechetical and pastorally effective for the purpose of healing and drawing individuals to Christ Jesus.
Q: Where can I find the schedule of priests celebrating your TV Masses?
A: The Mass schedule for the current month is available on the Daily Mass page. If you would like to find out which priest will celebrate Daily Mass on any given day, go to the "Schedule" link and choose the day you are interested in.
