I have noticed that in those weeks when I only attend Mass on Sunday, I don’t feel a closeness to God. I tend to focus more on my sins, my failures, my problems. There is more joy in me when I attend Mass at least once more during the week. It is even better when I attend twice.
September 3, 2013 I met Karen and some of the other facilitators for Mass today. I am hoping that I have the commitment to go to Mass on Friday which is the first Friday of the month.
September 7, 2013 I did go to First Friday Mass and was glad that I did. Fr. Tim was the celebrant, although I thought it would be Fr. Becker. There were about 50 or so people there including Pat Lysek. The Mass was given for her husband, who died 29 years ago. Today would have been their Anniversary. She is such a sweetheart. Karen and I made a “big deal” over her, telling her how glad we are that she will be in our small group at Scripture Study.
