Thought for today:
There are hundreds of reasons people will tell you why they go to church. There are also people with hundreds of reasons why they don’t go to church. When it comes down to it, we only need to go to church for one reason: to encounter Jesus Christ. Do we get too caught up in focusing on the music, the preaching, the people around us, or all the things we need to do when we exit the building? Is going to mass to receive Jesus enough for us?
Action for today:
Ask yourself the question, “why do I go to mass?” If your reasons are anything other than encountering Jesus, offer those reasons to God and ask Him to fix your focus on Him during mass.
Prayer for today:
Lord, allow me to encounter You at mass, because its You who draws me to the liturgy.

Be a Hero today – #ShareJesus:
Talk to a family member, friend, or coworker who you know has stopped going to mass. Ask them with kindness and mercy to tell you why. Share this video with them, and invite them to come with you to mass again next Sunday.
