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.
