Why do I go to church?

As a Catholic, I have the blessed privilege of being in front of the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ every Sunday, or anytime I go to a Mass.   For me, that’s probably one of the biggest things that kept me in the Church.  Eucharistic  worship is the  way the Church has worshiped from it’s very begging, and there is just no other way.   When Protestants go to a service, they may not realize it, but although the message of the service may be a good message, they base their experience  off what they got out of it.   For Catholics, when we go to Mass, there is a reason we have a crucifixion, why we kneel (more than once), there is a reason why we go to Confession.. it could be about us and having a clearer conscience before God, but it’s also so we can partake in the sacrament of  Communion, so that we might receive our Lord Jesus Christ.     You see, despite all what everyone outside the church thinks, the Mass is a beautiful picture, because it’s not about what we get out of it, but it’s about Christ who is the only acceptable sacrifice to God.
