When we go to Mass,
Why do we cross our arms? Are we in opposition? What are we opposed to? We should be opposed to sin.
Why do we roll our eyes? Are we searching? What are we searching for? We should be searching for God.
Why do we sigh? Are we impatient? What are we impatient for? We should be impatient to receive the Body of Christ.
Why do we slouch? Are we weak? What is our weakness? We should be offering our weaknesses up to God.
Why do we yawn? Are we tired? What are we tired of? We should be tired of submitting to our sinful nature.
But must we really cross our arms, roll our eyes, sigh, slouch, and yawn?
Why don’t we sing? Aren’t we joyful? Aren’t we in the presence of the Lord?
Why don’t we pray? Aren’t we thankful? Don’t we want to return to God his great gift of love?
Why don’t we respond? Don’t we listen? Don’t we hear the Word of God being spoken to us?
Why don’t we go? Are we avoiding something? Are we afraid? Are we too busy?
How can we change that?
