What would you tell the people who only come to church at Easter what the Mass and the Eucharist mean to you?

For Catholics who attend Mass weekly or more throughout the year, there is always the hope that our churches will be filled year-round as they are on Easter. That hope is even true for some of the faithful who get momentarily bothered that their usual pew is occupied by someone who only comes to church once or twice a year.

Yet, if you had the opportunity, what would you tell these Catholics about what regularly attending Mass and receiving the Eucharist means to you—and how it can make a difference in their life?

The Criterion invites you, our readers, to share what your answer to that question would be—to share your story of what attending Mass and receiving the Eucharist means to your life.

Send your submissions to John Shaughnessy by e-mail at jshaughnessy@archindy.org or by mail in care of The Criterion, 1400 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46202. Please include your parish and a daytime phone number where you can be reached. †
