The question arises…. How many of us go out of sheer love and affection towards the almighty?
At this virtual and digital age , many of us miss the time we spend with our near and dear ones as we are glued to our gadgets.
Also, many people just come to church as they find it as their duty to go to church.
They do not do it willingly. Sometimes, its just to show their parents that they are good children.
Sometimes, they come to church as they get to meet their friends.
Sometimes and i mean it, very rarely a few would visit because they really want to..!!
Also, There are many things i notice during mass..
The seats behind are packed. People will sandwich each other and fit in a conjusted place.
The places in the front, especially the first 3 rows are hardly having people sitting.
The priest mostly requests the people to come ahead and sit, rather than sit in such an uncomfortable manner.
Then, the mass begins, and so do the series of yawns..!!
I won’t deny that sometimes i yawn too..!!
Many of us fall asleep during the sermon.
Some of us pretend to listen, and some of us are busy inside our phones!!
What’s the point if you don’t pay attention during the sermon!!
One of the masses i attended recently, the priest gave an eye opening sermon where he simply asked one question, “WHY DO WE COME TO CHURCH”?
There was a silence, which was accompanied with another minute of silence.
That was the answer he expected. He explained to us what should have been our approach, that all we need to do is talk to the almighty for a minute.
We can indeed remove a minute out of our busy lives.
I’ve asked many of my friends about why do they come for mass, by far its just an obligation
What’s your choice?
You can go to church with a boyfriend, after having a baby and even during the menstrual period.
There is no restriction that can stop you when you wish to pray to God.
Some say that they go to church in their dream!
Isn’t it so cool to visit the almighty in your dream?
Now you cannot go to church because of COVID-19.
So stay home, stay safe and pray from home!
