I know we can ask Priests to offer/say Mass for our intentions. We can also ask the saints to pray and offer our intentions to God. How does these two ways of asking God for help differ from each other? Is Mass intentions way more powerful?
The Mass intention is way more powerful as it is the most perfect worship to God. Through the Mass, Jesus offers to God the Father the sacrifice He made on Calvary for His greater glory and redeem us from sin. To have our intention attached to His sacrifice is the highest form of prayer.
Praying for the intercession of the saints is very powerful, as they pray for us directly to God. God is so awesome that He gave us all these treasures to help us get to Heaven through the Catholic Church!
