Reasons for going to Mass: Reason #2:
At the Mass Jesus gives us the gift of Himself. When we go to Mass, we are doing what Jesus commanded His followers to do. It is a command to love and to be loved by God. Jesus offers Himself to us in the Word of God proclaimed by the Deacon or Priest that we hear, and in His Real Presence, offered to us in the Blessed Sacrament at Communion.
Even though you know that going to Mass is a good thing, you can talk yourself out of going by focusing on the negatives. At first, you may feel a little guilty, but eventually, you can justify your decision by convincing yourself that you are too busy, too tired, too bored, or too frustrated. When that happens, you miss the great gift that God gives to us in the Holy Eucharist.
Until next week, have a good and holy week and share the “Good News” with all you come in contact with.
God Bless you!
