  2. to officiate in a religious service

Conjugation[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

In its original sense, resar meant to read an oration: hence a missa resada is a mass which is read rather than sung ("low mass"). It has come to be used in the sense of to pray, especially when referring to non-Christian religions, in preference to the verb pregar, which has taken on a more mundane sense.
