Thank you Edel for joining me in this. I am now officially overjoyed that one other CM member will be going to daily Mass during Lent.

Oh, and welcome to the forums!

I've been attending daily Lenten Mass, but then I'm retired and so it's not an inconvenience.

Glad you're joining us here, Peter, thank you. And, I'm retired too, but I still have a lot of activities/events going on, so I do have to sometimes make daily Mass a priority over doing something else. But, I have to say that I am really enjoying going to daily Mass and hope to continue it even after Lent ends! thumbsup

Wonderful, John! And, thank you for joining us in daily Mass ( or how often we can go depending on work, Mass availablity, weather, illness, etc.) during these 40 days of Lent!wave

Hi Josephine, glad you're joining us in going to daily Mass. All we can do is go one day at a time! And, each day adds up. (Remember, that if you do something for 3 weeks, it becomes a habit.) I have a feeling that some of us (me I think) will continue going to daily Mass even after Lent because I'm really liking this (4 days so far!)

Thanks. My goal is to continue also. There were two churches in my area that had 8am mass, which I could easily go to before work. One church closed and the other changed their morning mass time. The 8 am mass at another neighboring church lasts at least 45 mins and I hate to walk out before the end of mass (or even before eucharist) so I don't go. I am currently going to 5:30 mass after work for Lent, even though I sometimes arrive late. I would love to make it a habit though.

Well, this is our chance, Josephine to make it into a habit and then continue after Lent. I wil keep it as a prayer intention that some/many/all of us here will be given the grace to continue with daily Mass throughout Lent and ongoing after that!Praying

Patricia, thank you. Your actions this Holy Lent have inspired me to pick up again the practice of going to daily mass. I requested to work at my school because it started later and I could go to mass. Then I stopped going saying my work is a priority. I know Wed. I can't go due to meetings, but I can watch the mass on EWTN and any other days I have a conflict with work.
St. Gianna Beretta Molla knew what is was to put Christ 1st in her life. she was a Dr., a working mom, professional woman, and a loving wife.
In regards to those looking for scripture readings, try http://www.universalis.com for installing daily readings, saints' feast days, etc., that will automatically come up everyday on your computer. St. Gianna Molla, pray for us! Praying
