Monday Morning Musings

I’ve missed Mass for about three consecutive weeks now.  I don’t like it, really, I don’t.  Half the time, the other five people in my family have prior engagements or decide that going is too much of a hassle.  Yesterday, though, I was home sick while my family went to Mass.  I know it’s not my fault for staying home on a Sunday morning throwing up and feeling miserable, but I still need to make amends.  I’m in luck.  The first week of every month, the religion class periods are spent in Adoration and there are priests available for Reconciliation.  I need that this week.


How’s my faith right now?  Good, I think.  No worse than usual, at the very least.  That doesn’t really satisfy me, though.  I want Christ in every part of me, smoothing and refining my rough edges and teaching me to love everyone and everything.  Hopefully, this week will lead me closer to Him.

  1. We’ve all felt like this at some stage or another. It’s really hard to go to Mass if everyone else is either watching a movie, going to dinner, meeting up with family/friends, but actually, that’s a great time to witness to them. Your choice is a witness to your relationship with Jesus.
    Have you considered Reconciliation in reparation? it always is a good choice for me.

    • Yes, Reconciliation is wonderful! The last time I went, I was moved to tears. My Confession experiences have been really powerful, a place in my life where I really, truly see God working. I do need to go to Confession soon….
