Famous quotes containing the word mass:

    When over Catholics the ocean rolls,
    They must wait several weeks before a mass
    Takes off one peck of purgatorial coals,
    Because, till people know what’s come to pass,
    They won’t lay out their money on the dead—
    It costs three francs for every mass that’s said.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
