THE SUNDAY SQUEEZE (Finding time for Mass in a busy schedule)

Family time is busy. Even without children, our modern lives are packed with activities.

So how do busy people make time for Mass, and why would they want to?


         ·           Plan ahead - Schedule Mass ahead of time and fit other activities around it. Make Mass the                                   priority or it will get squeezed out.     

         ·           Free up Sundays - Do chores on weekday nights. Confine kids activities to other days.

         ·           After Mass bonus - keep the positivity going afterwards with a visit to the park, an ice cream shop                         or café.

         ·           Double duty - If you are on the road, attend Mass near where you’ll be doing other things.


         1.           Feed your soul: Mass is a spiritual superfood.

         2.           Connect with others.

         3.           Breathe, Rest, Recharge: Get off the activity treadmill.

         4.           God said so: Do we need a better reason?

Through Sunday rest, daily concerns and tasks find their proper perspective, the material things we worry about give way to spiritual values.
