A story of the unseen sense of going and participating in church. It focuses on three characters and their guardians. This is what is understood to happen within a celebration of mass. From confession, to each part of mass such as communion, the offerings and our prayers for those who have gone to heaven or purgatory. Thus having hope and faith will help the stories advance through the explanation of mass.Written by

At the start of confession, the priest says "Hail purest Mary", to which the woman responds "Concieved without sin". This is a literal translation of the Spanish formula for confession (Ave María puríssima - sin pecado concebida).
However, in English, this form doesn't exist. It is custom for the penitent to start confession with "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned." See more »
This is a great way to learn more about the catholic faith. It will renewed your interest and appreciation of the Holy Mass Do not be discourage that is an animated movie. Its content is amazing. The movie is based on visionaries, it is not fiction. Great to watch with the family. The Most Reverend David L. Ricken, Bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay, said of this film: "The Greatest Miracle draws the viewer into the Mass by artistically portraying what we as Catholics believe to be taking place, but what we as human beings are incapable of perceiving with our earthy senses. It beautifully depicts the moment of the Consecration as a continuation of Christ's sacrifice on Calvary, and it celebrates the way in which we " unite ourselves with the heavenly liturgy and anticipate eternal life, when God will be all in all." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1326) The film is well worth seeing!
