For a day in thy courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
Life offers us a choice as Catholics. We can be Catholics who have to go to Mass or we can be Catholics who get to go to Mass. Today’s verse sums up the heart cry of the latter sort. And the reason for that cry is simple: every trip to Mass is a trip into the very presence of Jesus Christ himself, alive and changing lives in the Eucharist. Go to Mass, go to Heaven. What better place is there?
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO OUR READERS
Catholic Exchange is free—but it is not free to produce. Advertising revenue covers only a fraction of the cost to generate reliably Catholic commentary and news, inspiring videos, a selection of the best Catholic blogs, and daily meditations and prayers.
To give us the strength and stability we need, Catholic Exchange is turning to you—our loyal reader—and asking you to become a monthly contributor.
Whether you can give $5 or $25, $50 or $100 each month, please leave something behind so we can continue—and strengthen—this important apostolate.
We are deeply grateful for one-time gifts, but we encourage you to choose “Monthly” on the drop-down menu. Your support will ensure that Catholic Exchange will be here during this most critical moment for the Church and America.
