I focus better when I go to Mass alone


#1

During the week I go to daily Mass anywhere from 3-5 days a week, alone…and I am able to concentrate and really focus on receiving Jesus.
However, on the weekend, I go with a friend, and I notice I am often distracted and as a result I leave feeling empty.
I don’t know what to do…I want to go with my friend, but I also want to be completely in awe of Jesus.
Suggestions?

If I were in your shoes I would still go with your friend. I’m sure you can figure out some way to be more focused. I’d ask Jesus to help you with this.

Perhaps you could go with your friend, but sit apart in the Mass, and join up together again after it is over. I’m sure a friend would understand since you’re not supposed to be socializing during Mass anyway.
