February 11 - Our Lady of Lourdes
Then the disciples of John approached Jesus and said, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast (much), but your disciples do not fast?" Jesus answered them, "Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast” (Matthew 9: 14-15).
The Pharisees did not appreciate Jesus and who he was. Being with Jesus is a cause for celebration. We should view going to Mass in this way – a celebration.
Lord Jesus, help me to want to go to Mass out of love for you.
