    Short Answer....

    The term "Mass" is derived from the Late Latin word missa (dismissal), a word used in the concluding formula of Mass in Latin: "Ite, missa est" ("Go; it is the dismissal").


    Long Answer...

    They probably weren't but the artist who painted it most likely wanted to capture all of there faces.

    At least, that's my Mel Brooks answer.

    He didn't think a polaroid of the back of Jesus' head would be worth his time, I guess.
