This is one instance where the rules of a literal translation are bent a little. It is more important to bring to focus that we are to take the fruits of the Liturgy into the world and share the Gospel of Christ to all in thought, word, and deed. The exact translation of the Latin “Ite missa est” means “This is the Mass.” This is the Mass that must be lived in each of our lives for the greater glory of God.
