The Mass Atones?

"As often as the sacrifice of the Cross by which 'Christ our Pasch has been sacrificed' is celebrated on the alter, the work of our redemption is carried out" (Catechism). Is this true? Is it likewise true that the Mass atones for our sins? To learn more about Rome's claims and the importance of the issues, read chapter 11. Also read chapter 12 for a consideration of purgatory (and we don't mean Purgatory the ski resort!). So read 11-12 for Tuesday, May 24th.
