"He that is faithful in the smallest of things is also faithful in the greatest."
- Luke 16:10.
This is a wonderful opportunity to become a special part of the liturgy. Altar Servers play an extremely important role at the celebration of Mass at Our Lady of Mercy. Besides assisting the celebrant, altar servers also support the congregation in their worship by their prayerful and reverent actions. The servers carry the Cross and candles, help to set the altar and hold the Roman Missal for the celebrant.
These things might seem like details. But, Pope Paul VI actually talked about this in an address to altar servers. “You might think that the liturgy is made up of a lot of minor details: posture, genuflections, bows, handling the censer, missal, cruets, etc. It is then you must remember the words of Christ’s Gospel.”
