Sunday Catholic Mass Today Daily Tv Mass, 7 August 2023



For those seeking a connection to the Church and the Catholic Faith, the National Catholic Broadcasting Council’s Daily TV Mass YouTube channel offers daily Masses. This channel uploads daily videos, including a Sunday Mass video every week. With over 410K subscribers, the official Daily TV Mass channel continues to grow in popularity.

Today’s Catholic Mass was celebrated by Father Dan Donovan, who expressed gratitude to the generous contributors who make broadcasting the Mass possible. Two particular donors were acknowledged during this Mass: the Resendes family from Calgary, Alberta, in memory of their parents Teolinda and Jose Resendes, as well as brother Amancio, whose family immigrated from Santa Maria Azores, Portugal. The second set of donors mentioned are Dave and Jeanette from Edmonton, Alberta.

In the spirit of thanksgiving for the Daily TV Mass and in celebration of their 56th anniversary on August 7, the Church extends its gratitude to these donors for their gift of the Mass.

During the Mass, Father Dan acknowledges our sins and prepares us to partake in the sacred mysteries. We reflect on our contrition and ask for God’s mercy: “You were sent to heal the contrite of heart. Lord, have mercy. You came to call sinners, Christ, have mercy. You are seated at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us. Lord, have mercy. May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.”

The Mass includes a prayer: “Almighty and merciful God, by whose gift your faithful offer you rites and praiseworthy service, grant we pray that we may hasten, without stumbling, to receive the things you have promised. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit. God forever and ever. Amen.”

The Mass also features a reading from the Book of Numbers, recounting the Israelites’ journey through the wilderness and their longing for the foods they had in Egypt. Despite their complaints, they were sustained by manna from heaven, a food described as being like coriander seed and having a taste similar to cakes baked with oil.
