Guide to Discerning – Attending Mass
Not all prayer has to be done in quiet solitude. Attending Mass as often as you can, even every day if you can manage it, serves many purposes. First, the Liturgical Prayer is one of the cornerstones of both priesthood and the Catholic faith. This is an opportunity to observe priests at work and talk to them in person about what the priesthood is like. It can also help to be directed in prayer, and to celebrate with the community at large. Finally, it gives you a daily opportunity to receive the Eucharist, which is one of only two Sacraments that can be repeated.
