I'm Telling You

5 Thoughts For Today

5. If you miss Mass, get your butt to the Box, pronto. How stupid will you sound on Judgment Day when asked by the Lord, "Why did you neglect Me?" You say, "I wanted to watch the game"? I'm right there with you; I was guilty of this once, while still a Protestant. I confessed it later, though we recognized no such command to always go to church, under pain of eternal death.

4. Sometimes, a sin is a shortcut to something good. Maybe we have to pray for the fortitude to wait for that good thing, while acknowledging the good of wanting it.

3. Moment of grace: "Hmmm, I never thought of it that way."

2. Sorry, teens. I gave all my dough to the Little Sisters of the Poor.

1. Purgatory is like Heaven's waiting room. If it was on fire. All the time.
