It’s that time of year again where the events and activities all around us signal the end of the current year. Our time and energies are taken up with rounding off this year’s work so we can have some respite from work and hopefully some quality family time.
For many Catholics, Sunday Mass is just part of the fabric of our Christian life. We began attending Mass at an early age and became familiar with its structure and content over the years almost ‘by osmosis’. Those of us who attended Catholic schools will certainly have received some teaching about Mass and the sacraments, but for many of us, it is not something that we have studied deeply.
