Why go to church

Received this email I wanted to share. It applies to those who attend a Catholic Mass or those protestants/christians who attend worship services.

>Worship Services which are merited for a rightful praise to God and sermons which help them find God’s will.

>The Mass which also teaches God’s will for us, but more importantly merits innumerable graces from God through the sacraments and traditions.


If  you're spiritually  alive,  you're going to love this!
If  you're spiritually  dead,  you won't want to read it.
If  you're spiritually  curious,  there is still hope!

Why Go To Church? 

Someone wrote a letter to the editor of a  newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.  "I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in  that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons.  But for the life of me, I can't  remember a single one of them..  So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all." 

This  started a real controversy in the "Letters to  the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor.  It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:  
"I've been married for 30 years now.  In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals.   But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals.  But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work.  If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.  Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" 

When you are DOWN to nothing..... God is UP to something!  Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!  Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!


"When  Satan is knocking at your door,

simply say, "Jesus, could you get that for me?"
