For reasons I can’t really go into, I currently go to a Pentecostal church since my husband’s entire life is invested in it – his father and uncles are pastors and my husband also in the worship team. Most of the time I silently say my rosary, or just zone off since most times, the service isn’t in English.
We rarely go to mass because of church/familiar obligations, but my husband is totally open to attending mass. Converting, though, that’s an entirely different story. Slowly but surely I’m working my way to that goal.
Okay, so that was the background story.
Here’s my question that I need answered, or at least opinions.
Every once in a while, the pastor will say during service: “I see some people aren’t moving, some people don’t know how to worship. If you are standing still then you don’t love the Lord.”
Of course, being raised with the TLM I’m just not comfortable doing all that hoohah and so I end up sitting down because the pastor’s comments are directed at ME since I really am the only one not moving.
This is just one issue among many others that I deal with, nevermind the constant comments and jokes about being Catholic, so I thought I’ll first get opinions on this small issue first.
Should I just clap and do all the song actions so everyone can just shut up about me, but if I do, I’d be doing all that for THEM and not for God.
What to do what to do.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
