Summer Challenge: Mass Prep for June 23/24

June 22, 2018

The Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist, Vigil and the Mass of the Day are this weekend! I hope you’ve been preparing along with us. This is the fifth day of prep for this weekend’s liturgy; here’s the post outlining the challenge I’ve thrown out there for everyone. Please give Fr. Mike Schmitz’s podcast a listen (it will make what we are doing easier to understand).

The link is to all the readings for each day.

At the Vigil Mass

Mass during the Day

Today, reread all the readings for this weekend. Then, review your notes from each day. Finally, again write two or three sentences (in your phone’s Notes app, or in a notebook where you keep important thoughts) about what God is saying to you in the readings.

Again, if you’re seeing this challenge for the first time today, no worries. Just jump right in and read both the first and second readings, and then the Gospel, and start. Take a minute with each reading; we can start correctly next week.

Y’all, I am firmly convinced that the secret to “getting more out of the Mass”…is bringing more to the Mass when we show up!

Do this with us for the remaining seven weeks of summer. And then let’s talk from week to week about how this exercise is changing your experience at Mass

God bless!
