Get Anything Out of the Mass?

Posted on July 3, 2023 by Published by

It’s been said that familiarity breeds contempt. For Catholics, I think there’s a temptation for familiarity to breed complacency. We are all susceptible of taking for granted that which is closest to us, including the Mass. While Sacred Tradition is very important to understand the fullness of our faith, if we get too comfortable, our experience of Catholicism can be reduced to rituals alone, going through the motions week in and week out, disconnected from our ‘real lives’. I love the quote I heard recently that “true tradition isn’t the worship of ashes but the preservation of fire.” Amen.

The next time you go to Mass, may you approach it with new eyes of faith. And may you find solace, guidance, and inspiration to continue to fight the good fight of faith.
