      Why Go To Church?

      A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained
      that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. “I’ve gone for 30
      years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard something like
      3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of
      them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs
      by giving sermons at all.”  

      This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column,
      much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone
      wrote this clincher:

      “I’ve been married for 30 years now.. In that time my wife has cooked
      some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire
      menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this.. They all
      nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife
      had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.
      Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be
      spiritually dead today!”  

      When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith sees the
      invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank
      God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!

        • Neicy,
          I go to Tridentine Mass on Sunday all sung in Latin – all the incense and bells..... This week the sermon was about "happy religions" and what happens when life gets tough and you're at low ebb will the happy religion see you though ........so even I remember stuff .....
