Requesting a Mass Intention
The Church considers the Mass the greatest possible prayer of intercession because it is the perfect offering of Christ to the Father by making present the Paschal Mystery of His death and resurrection.
It is a longstanding tradition in the Church that a priest may be requested to offer a Mass for a specific intention, even when the person requesting cannot be physically present at the Mass.
The faithful may choose to make a free will offering, called a stipend, to a priest or religious community in order to have the Mass offered for a specific intention.
The sacrificial offering of a stipend is a means whereby a Catholic may contribute to the upkeep of the priest serving in a diocese or religious community. Your offerings for Holy Masses are used to support the monks of Saint Bernard Abbey.
