By Timothy P. O'Malley
Are you BORED? not really, given the never-ending possibilities at the present time to determine, proportion, submit, watch, and prefer. So are you bored? No means!
(Except probably at Mass.)
We wish the Mass to entertain, make us snicker, supply us foot tapping track and sound-bite theology, and get it performed in lower than an hour. but each Sunday many people track out.
Author Tim O’Malley, in a chain of reflections on every thing of the Mass, demanding situations us to show the belief of boredom on its head, calling boredom—the “good” boredom that opens us to the quiet inside house the place we will be able to stumble upon God—a “sweet gift.”
It is there that complete participation within the Mass turns into possible—the strength to be transfixed through a ritual, to think about the readings, to enjoy the Eucharist. To be fruitfully “bored again.”
Become a Bored back Catholic and rediscover the ability of the Mass to alter your lifestyles – and the whole world.
