I go to Mass now and it’s just not fun like it used to be. I try to figure out why, but I can’t. The music is low, the message always seem to be doom-and-gloom or money-motivated and the congregations are always non-vocal and flat. I find myself going to Mass and going through the motions and being there just because I know I have to.
I went to a serivce at a local Bible church and found it to be the exact opposite. The music was refreshingly upbeat, the people were cheerful, and the homily/sermon was very lively and relevant.
I read once where someone said: “If God seems too far away from you today, ask yourself ‘Who Moved?’.” I don’t feel like I moved though. I still love my God and my Jesus. I believe myself to be a good person and do my best to please him.
My question is: What’s the big deal with the fact that I get charged up for God by going to another church? They’re not evil people just because they’re not Catholic. These churches make me feel the way my Catholic church used to make me feel. Passion for the Lord.
