Ten Steps to a Joyful Mass


This was published in my parish's bullitin yesterday, and I thought it was worth sharing here...

Ten Steps to a Joyful Mass

  1. Make your genuflection or bow a real act of adoration.

  2. Sing the songs even if you're not a good singer. God will love your effort.

  3. Try to find one thing in the readings from scripture that will apply to you - here and now.

  4. Try to get at least one good thought from the homily by listening well.

  5. Make your donation to your parish as a consious act of yourself and your work to God.

  6. Look for the beauty in the Eucharistic prayer - it's there.

  7. Say the Lord's Prayer firmly and loud.

  8. Make Holy Communion a real meeting with Our Lord and real joining with others in His love.

  9. Stay and join in singing the recessional song - remember who left the Last Supper early.

  10. Smile and say hello to someone when you leave the church.
