There has been a lot of discussion about Life Teen Masses recently. I am I teen, and I *really *don’t like Life Teen Masses.:banghead: Some People will talk about how it draws teens to the Mass, I think thats a load of garbage. Here are the reasons why I can’t stand Life Teen Mass.
The Atmosphere at every Life Teen Mass I have attended is one that seems to encourage people to dress like trash. At the Life Teen Masses I have been to, you would not believe the things people where. I really wouldn’t be to upset if they were dressed a little casual, but many people where what must be the most raggedy, torn up, worn out cloths they have. And thats the Men.
It tries to solve the problem of Youths not being properly educated in their faith by changeing a Mass for them instead of giving them proper education. In my opinion, it is better to just not go to mass, than go (looking like trash) having no idea what the Eucharist is, and thinking abortion and all that stuff is good, and then recieving the Eucharist.
The atmosphere is protestantized (if thats a word). It is basicly a protestant service with the eucharist (which I know makes a BIG difference, but it deosn’t take away from the fact that its protestantized). It causes people that go to the masses (remember, many of these people don’t know basic catholic doctrine) to view it as the same thing as a protestant service.
Any other teens (or anyone else) want to way in. What do you think?
