Don’t take a vacation from Mass
When you go on vacation in the summer, do you take a vacation from Mass? Do you make the days of summer lazy by staying home on Sunday? Here are four reasons to fit Mass into your summer schedule:
1. After Jesus’ resurrection, his followers became the early Church by coming together to keep his message alive. Every time you attend Mass, you help to keep Jesus’ message alive. That can only happen in church.
2. At Sunday Mass, millions of people you don’t know are praying for you and with you. Where else can you get that kind of help?
3. Attending Mass connects you to the Communion of Saints – the saints in heaven, the souls in purgatory and believers on earth. That’s powerful company.
4. Mass is the way a Catholic fulfills the commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day. If God tells you to do something, you should probably do it.
