I know that as Catholics sometimes we can get caught up in rituals of the Mass, especially if you are one that attends daily Mass. Yes it is beautiful, and meaningful but for those of you that are cradle Catholics and have witnessed the same event every Sunday or daily, you can have a tendency to loose the spark of what it all means. I often tell cradle Catholics that I consider myself lucky in the since that coming into the church as an adult I have a better understanding of what it all means, I can appreciate it more than say those who have been a Catholic their whole lives because see as a cradle Catholic, the Catholic Church is all you know, when you come into the Catholic church after having been affiliated with different denominations you can see what you have been missing, and I feel that for allot of us converts to the Church it helps us to have a deeper passion for the Mass.
Now I am not saying that converts are better than cradle’s what I am saying is if you have gotten to the point in your life that the Mass is more of a routine than you need to spice up your Church life. I often times will tell people that I consider myself an evangelical Catholic, and I am sure that you are giving the screen the same confused look that people often give me when they hear me say that. See I grew up in a Baptist church, and so it was not uncommon for someone to be “filled with the Holy Spirit” and shout or raise their hands when they felt overwhelmed with love for God. Now I am sure that if I was to do that during a Mass, I would probably get some very strange looks. But see there are times during the Mass that I do get that overwhelming love for God, especially when I partake of the Eucharist, and there are times that I have to bite my tongue to keep from expressing the over abundance of love that I am feeling.
