Ordinary 8 – How to get the Most out of Mass (in Four Easy Steps): 1) Come Hungry 2) Listen for God’s Voice 3) Keep the Conversation Going 4) Plan Ahead
Ordinary 7 – The opening prayer collects your prayers and offers them to God. Why do we respond at Mass? You must say Yes to God; your salvation depends on it. Mass is a time to practice our Yes by responding clearly, promptly, and with our whole heart.
Ordinary 6 – We sing at Mass because God has forgiven our sins, because God is coming to meet us, because we were made to praise God. If we make it to Heaven we will be singing God’s praises for all eternity. It wouldn’t hurt to practice a little now.
