How can a sentence have a mass? Mass is a way to measure matter.

I'm guessing it has something to do with the mass of aluminum, but Al does not have genetic material, so I have no idea.

Unless you take the individual letters of the sentence as elements on the periodic table. Hmm, let me think about that one.

H = Hydrogen = 1.008
I = Iodine = 126.90
S = Sulfur = 32.07

Ge = Germanium = 72.61
Ne = Neon = 20.18
S = Sulfur = 32.07

Cu = Copper = 63.55
P = Phosphorus = 30.97

Al = Aluminum = 26.98

Atomic mass = 406.338 g/mol

*note: This is not actually a valid compound, so the atomic mass has no real meaning.

Nice! But he should have said "atomic mass".

There is a mass in my local chapel every Sunday at 9.00am 10.0am 11.00am 12.00pm.

the priest isn't called Al, he hasn't a cup but he has a big chalice instead, but he does wear Jeans (when he ain't buggering small boys)

How easy would it have been if I had said atomic mass.
