I don’t get anything out of Mass — why should I go?

Why can’t I just pray alone?

These are common feelings, especially among young people but among many adults as well. The great Bishop Fulton J. Sheen said, “If you don’t get anything out of Mass, it’s because you don’t bring the right expectations to it.” The Mass is not entertainment, he said. It is worship of the God who made us and saves us. It is an opportunity to praise God and thank Him for all that He has done for us.
