I didn't feel like I was worshipping God communally as the Holy Mass is supposed to be. I felt like all the people at mass were worshipping God in their own way. It almost seemed like Eucharistic adoration than the Holy Mass.I find it intriguing that he would say, "It almost seemed like Eucharistic adoration than the Holy Mass." Tony, you say that like it's a bad thing. ;)
There were not a lot of distractions, but there was a decided lack of community. As I said before, Mass is communal prayer, where we join with Catholics the world 'round as one body to praise the God of the universe.
Seriously, though, it is interesting that he and I would find it so different. I quote his account of his experience here, not only to be fair, but to ask if others agree, and if so, why?
