Attending Mass every day is a luxury for many of us. Too often, we quickly dismiss an idea without giving any thought to whether or not it would actually be worth our time to “sacrifice” a certain amount of time each day. Before I began attending daily Mass, I was one of them.
1. Peaceful 30 Minutes
No matter where you are in life, whether you’re a full-time student or a stay-at-home parent, a half-hour break every day would be welcome. The constant stimulation we’ve been conditioned to expect is largely to blame for the clamorous nature of our lives. Even when we are “off,” we rarely turn off our devices and relax.
2. Takes the focus away from us
Going to Mass is the best way to worship God that a person can do on Earth. Even if you’re not there, every time a mass is said, a sacrifice is made for you. Christ invites us to accept Him in this sacrifice as often as we are able.
3. Applying Faith
It’s been hard for me to stop micromanaging and take a step back and look at the big picture of my life. Trusting God is all God is asking of me and my loved ones right now. When things aren’t going “our way,” it’s easy to adopt a “poor me” mentality. Troubles have a way of making us doubt God, but they also reveal the true strength of our faith.
4. Prayer Time
Praying less often isn’t just due to being too busy; the lack of a response from God is a much more common reason. Most people don’t pray at all because they don’t think it makes a difference in their lives. If we allow it, attending Mass every day will help us develop more consistent prayer lives.
5. Jesus Christ
Go to Mass every day if for no other reason than the genuine encounter with Christ. You will have a real, not merely metaphorical, encounter with Christ at the Mass. Your body and His will become one in a way that is impossible anywhere else in the universe.We highly recommend this Catholic book below that will help your faith. It addresses numerous questions and can be given to friends and family.
