Recently I attended church with my inlaws and my husband. They are catholic. My DH doesnt go to church very often, but his family is super religious. I figured Id give it a try and see how it was. I know every church will be different but I was looking around and it seemed that 85% of the people there were only there out of habbit and obligation, they were not really paying attention to what was going on, one lady was actually filing her nails! then when the time comes every one would say the mechanical amens or whatever in response to what the pastor was saying, but still not really paying attention.... whats the point then? It made me feel like church is meaningless.
How many of you go to church out of habit and obligation?
even if you do believe in your religion, why go to church to not pay attention? do you feel you HAVE TO attend to be a "good" catholic?
You're right it's pointless to go, if your just going to be a bench warmer. :) I will admit there are times I'm like the one filling her nails, Well I don't really file them, but that's my attitude.
Sometimes it's because of WHO has mass, (i.e. the priest). I've found certain priest to be a turn off for me. Sometimes it's because I'm restless and I want to be doing something else too: I want to be MULTI-tasking! more next post.
