Weeks go by slowly if you’re bored or doing something you don’t like. That’s why weeks go by slowly when you’re in school, unless you’re one of those overbearing kids who gleefully ran to school every morning.
Conversely, when you’re really enjoying something, time typically flies. I’m finding that the time I spend in church, especially during the week, goes by really fast. That’s noteworthy, since not all that long ago I spent a lot of my time in church thinking about what I was going to make for dinner that night or having a partial anxiety attack over all the things I hadn’t accomplished over the weekend.
My newfound joy in attending Mass may have something to do with going more often, or it could just be coincidence. Whatever the reason, I’m happy about it.
Here’s a good quote from today’s gospel reading to keep in mind heading into the weekend:
The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.Mark 12:31
This is the second greatest commandment, according to Jesus, and it’s a good one to keep in mind, even if you’re not a believer. There’s nothing wrong with loving people, right? Happy Fri-yay!
