I tried pretty hard to get to mass today since it's a Holy Day of Obligation... I usually miss those days, but I've resolved to do better.
I prefer to go on the actual day... Vigil masses often feel like I'm cheating somehow. So we got up early, made it there a couple minutes early according to apple iphone time. However, the mass was nearly complete. They must have started 15 minutes or more early...it was supposed to start at 7, and after mass, by the time we wandered back out to the truck, it was 7:13
I'm wondering, does it count as going to mass, because I was there on time, or does it not count, as I missed most of it because the bulletin time doesn't match the priests time. :confused:
I know, it would be good to arrive early anyways, to settle in a say a few prayers before... but I'm just not that good yet! How early do y'all show up (assuming you're not there extra early for confession or a rosary). :confused:
