The Good, the Bad, the Mass.
There are many people who attend Mass regularly for many reasons, some go because of their belief in Catholicism and God, some because they find going to Mass as a nice end/start to the week and others, as most kids will agree, because they are forced to go bytheir elders.In the same way, others don't go because they don't believe or are of a different faith, theydon't have the time or because they simply don't want to go.There are two teenagers who have shared their view with us, they are Emma, aged 15 andJames, also aged 15.Emma says, “I really enjoy going to Mass on a Sunday”.On the other hand, James says, “I prefer to stay in bed, Mass is boring”.In this essay, I will be looking into the reasons why the two teens feel the way they doabout Mass.Emma says that she goes with her family but she doesn't say at what age she startedgoing or why. I can guess that, like myself, she went from a young age and because her parents were Catholics... It “runs” in the family.She also gets involved in the Mass by serving on the altar, helping with the offertory andreading. One of the reasons I took an active part in the Mass was because it meant Iwould be doing something at most parts of the Mass, meaning I wouldn't get bored duringthe Mass and because it was something new to me.Emma also says of how she gets closer to God because she is in His presence.
