As i mentioned in another forum section, i was really heartbroken yesterday as i had to put the food fasting a bit on hold in the last period of Lent, after advices from my confession father.
I also mentioned this to a friend (he is christian, but not really a church attending one) and he asked me how many times during Lent i have been to mass and i told him like it was: each day up to yesterday.
Yesterday was an exception as i felt sick, was coughing and did not want to infect anyone else, at least not the priest. And well, i had a bit of an emotional blackout too.
My friend made it sound like i`m crazy in the same tone as a suicide bomber or like Jim Jones. But how can it be bad to attend mass regulary, be obedient and get a good habit worked in?
Medically, i have been unwise yes and realize that. But is attending mass regulary a “crazy thing” to do? This has maybe something to do with that i live in a protestant country where most people dislike the Catholic Church a whole lot too.
I need your opinions. How often do you attend mass during a week?
