MASS GUIDE FOR CHILDREN - 9
Now the priest is about to begin the most important part of the Mass, when God will change, through the priest's words and actions, the bread into the true Body of Jesus and the wine into the true Blood of Jesus.
Because this part of the Mass is so important, the priest says a prayer right before he begins this part. This prayer is called the Preface.
In the Preface, the priest thanks and praises God for all the good blessings He has given us.
At this part of the Mass, think of all the good things you have in your home; your parents, family, home, food, clothing. Think of your friends and the school you go to. Think of your religion and the sacraments and the saints. They lead you to heaven!
