I feel like a crudgemugen, but I always sort of dread that part of the Mass. I hate forced friendliness and touchy feely stuff. I especially can’t stand it at daily Mass. Usually everyone is sort of spread apart at daily Mass, so I just wave and smile. I always feel silly.
I fake it pretty well, but I still can’t stand it. I think the kids like it though. I wish they’d get rid of it. Aren’t I a killjoy? But, the whole thing reminds me of my mother forcing me kiss someone or be friendly.
Anyone else feel this way???
