I'm sure I'm not the only one who admits it: I miss mass.

This pandemic is making me think a lot about what it is that I love about mass, specifically, do I love the ABOUT or do I love the THE of Mass.

Maybe this will help:  there are a lot of things we love about the Church, but do we love the Church?

There are a lot of things I love ABOUT going to Mass.  For example, I love singing with and hearing the congregation sing.  I love wearing something nice to go to church.  I love the opportunity to talk to people I have't seen.  

But I also love THE Mass, and Easter Vigil is my favorite.  I love being a part of the Body of Christ.  I love receiving the Eucharist.  I love the liturgy.

I love the technology that brings the Church to my home, and I'm happy to admit that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

A blessed Easter to you and your families. May you find Joy in the Word.

Let us pray for each other,
