How to watch mass online at home: Live streaming Mass will be the only way we can participate in our Sunday Mass obligation. This is unprecedented. Due to the threat of covid19 Catholics are being told that their Dioceses will only be offering Mass streaming live online. Catholic Masses live are being shared through Youtube live, or Facebook live. Sunday mass online is definitely unusual. The question then arises, how are we to participate at home? Do we do the responses when the priest says, "The Lord be with you"? Do we kneel? Are we watching like it is a movie? Or are we to participate in the Sunday Mass even though it is online.

Catholic speaker Ken Yasinski offers some practical sights into how we can participate in an online Mass, even though we are not physically present.
