... have you ever legitimize, in your own mind, excuses for not attending mass? My throat is scratchy, I must be coming down with something. I worked third shift and need my rest. I'm on vacation. Out of town. I don't want to drag the kids. blah.blah.blah.
Yes? Well, who hasn't at some point in your life. However, next time you feel the temptation rise to make tired excuses for not attending weekly mass, stop and think about people like this man.
