I haven’t been to church in a very long time
3 days ago
My siblings and I are really winning in the game of disappointing our folks, as far as staying in church is concerned.

I have an older brother and a younger sister, and I really don’t know what it is that’s in the water in my parent's house because we can’t just seem to get it right.

We have really strayed from the proverbial path.

I miss going to church. I miss it so much but for some reason, I just can’t get myself to go, and it's not from a lack of trying.

I always wonder where young folks like myself get the drive to go to church, and why I'm lacking it.

The last time I went to church was in early June, when I had gone to see my mum back home.

Before that, I hadn’t set foot in church since the pandemic hit and we had to watch church on TV.

I think that’s when the devil attacked my faith because that was two years of Godlessness.

I am actually a pretty spiritual individual and love Church, so I don’t get where the problem is.

It's just a matter of getting up early in the morning on a Sunday when I’m not supposed to be at work and attending mass.

And it's mass, for Christ’s sake! Literally 45 minutes of my time and then I’d be done for the day.

That’s one thing I’ve always loved about Catholic Church, it’s so relaxed.

You can literally wear jeans, a T-shirt and slippers to church and nobody would bother you.

Then you partake in the Body of Christ and before you know it, you’ve been there 40 minutes and they’re reading the weekly announcements.

But maybe that’s also what I don’t like about it. I’m still trying to decide.
