Stuff Catholics Like - Day 7 at the Beach - Friday's Auto-Post

Daily Mass -

Since we are at the beach this week and have been going to 9am daily Mass as a family, I figured this would be a good topic for this weeks installment.

Catholics love daily Mass, that doesn't necessarily mean they actually go to it regularly. But they love to talk about going to it. It's kinda like a badge of honor to go to Daily Mass - like being a Super Catholic of something. It must have something to do with that daily infusion of Eucharistic Grace.

The blue-hairs and geezers go to daily Mass in droves at our church. I mean what else do they have to do all day. We kid cause we care. Actually they are a great example to the younger generations of how to live out their faith.

Lent is also a busy time at daily Mass. At our church, the pews of the chapel are packed during Lent.

When you are done with your vacation, I would like to see a non-Catholic's guide for attending a Catholic mass. (If you don't have one already.)

Every time I have to go to a friend's baptism, I feel so lost. I don't know the secret handshake at the door or when to sit and when to stand or anything. I might as well be wearing a shirt that says "Not A Catholic" in big letters. Which is alright, because I'm not Catholic, but I don't want to be committing some huge faux pas.

Thanks.
