Going To Mass

Going to Mass is not fundamentally about my unique spiritual experience, but about giving over part of myself in love to all other believers so that together we can manifest Christ’s love for the world. Even if I’m distracted by work, dealing with a sick toddler, or more interested in watching a football game later in the afternoon, my presence on Sunday is necessary for the Church’s mission of divine love. The Church is “Catholic” because her destiny is to gather all the human family into the peace of Christ’s love.
