Eucharisticum Mysterium 29-30: Weekday Mass

Some commentary on daily Masses:

29. The faithful should be invited to take part in Mass often on weekdays as well, even daily.

This is especially recommended for those weekdays that should be celebrated with particular attention, above all in Lent and Advent; also on lesser feasts of the Lord and on certain feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary or of the saints that are held in special honor in the universal or the local Church.

I’m curious that with the emphasis on Advent and special feasts that the Easter season isn’t mentioned, especially the Easter Octave.

30. It is very fitting that meetings or congresses aimed at fostering the Christian life or the apostolate or at promoting religious studies, as well as spiritual retreats of various kinds, should be planned in such a way that the eucharistic celebration is their high point.
