Is the Catholic mass the same everywhere in the world?

The Catholic mass is the same everywhere in the world.  The readings are the sames and the mass structure is the same commemorating Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross through the Holy Eucharist.  It is one of the greatest aspects of the Church.  Where ever you go in the world you can attend mass and know that it is the same as it would be if you were at your local parish.

The parts of the mass that are different are possibly the language, depending where you are and the Homily.

The Homily is the sermon portion of the mass given by the Priest or Deacon.  It is the segment of the service in which the Priest celebrating the mass discusses how the daily readings from the Bible relate to issues of the day and other moral and religious points he wishes to make.

  1. That isn’t quite accurate, as within the bosom of the Catholic Church are also Eastern or ‘Orthodox’ rites amongst what is usually referred as Eastern Catholic churches (in full Communion with Rome).

    Why is it that no matter in the world you are, the same Bible passages are read (I understand that the messages may be different, depending on local/world events)? I come from a Quaker background and I cannot find an answer to why; all I can find is that the passages from the Lectionary are the same.

    Went to Mass in a sea town I had no place being. In a Basilica containing the bones of a Saint who rescued a a child from a whale. The first reading was from the Book of Jonah. The gospel was of the Fishers of People. Freaked me out.

    I’ve always believed that it is the same readings all over the world, but twice I’d asked a friend in Richmond, BC who goes to St. Paul’s Parish there, this appears to not be the case.

    in the Philippines where I live, I’m aware that there could be two different sets of readings on days that a major feast is being celebrated like the Sto. Nino on the 3rd Sunday of January.

    But I am really intrigued why it’s not the same in Canada … can you help enlighten? :)

  16. Do you minnd if I quote a few of your poss as lonhg ass I provide credi aand sources back to your website?
    My website is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would really benefit from a
    lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this alright with you.
    Thanks a lot!

    Is it safe or risky to charge a cordless blender up that was
    not used for 10 years? No visual indicators of leaking.

    It’s been kept in a box and bubble wrap for a decade, it
    was utilized for a couple of months ahead of that.
    Should it end up being safe to charge it up or could it be
    likely to leak or fuse ? No reason why it will not be secure.

    Teilard de Chardin noosphere over earth’s biosphere applies here, universal gospel.
    Nice idea but I don’t think it always happens. Today the holy father’s homily in Thailand was not the same here in USA.

    The majority of the risk of surgical treatment is certainly from the anaesthesia.
