I’ve never really done this before, so sorry if I don’t explain it very well,haha.
Today, for the first time I went to mass with my friend (who is younger than me), who is of course catholic. I’ve always been curious about it,I’m 16, my parents arn’t religious and neither are any other of my friends so I thought ‘why not?’.
During and after mass, I just couldn’t believe how amazing the feeling is. I was just absorbing every word like a sponge.
My friends dad was kind enough to point out prayers in the prayer book and help me find which ones are which.
But I did feel a bit uncomfortable, but only because I thought I might do something insulting or not do something that you must.
But after a while we were asked to shake hands with people and say ‘may peace be with you’ not only did my friend and family say it to me, but other who I had never met before. They shoke my hand as though we’d known each other for ages.:eek:
And I was blessed. After I felt so happy like ‘wow, i’ve been blessed’ and i wouldn’t stop smiling.
I find myself not being able to stop thinking about it, and about God. I feel like I want to be part of all this. Closer to God, and to others. But would it be strange for me too, because my family arn’t catholics.
I hope this wasn’t too long. But I don’t really have anyone to discuss it too.
Cheers. H x :flowers:
