Do you ever find yourself going through the motions in Mass? I really try to stay focused most times, but with my 4 year old it is hard. I find myself repeating the creed while thinking about what she is doing, or how I am going to keep her entertained through the rest of the Mass, or whatever.
So much of our services are repeated- while I find comfort in the routine- sometimes I wonder if I am becoming like the Pharises- going through the motions and being legalistic without having the heart. I found this quote and I think about it alot.
It is better to say one Our Father fervently and devoutly than a thousand with no devotion and full of distraction. -- St. Edmund
