True Confessions Of A Daily Mass-Goer

We're not your typical old, grumpy grandparents.

True Confessions Of A Daily Mass-Goer

There are a lot of stigmas that come with being Catholic and practicing your faith in this day and age is harder than ever before. While people are offended by God's name and feel judged by anyone of religious background, the world has created their own idea of who Catholics are. While most of them are completely off, here are a few accurate depictions of Catholics and daily mass goers.

1. We’re not all old people who wag their fingers at people for living differently.

People who are very involved in their Catholic faith and attend daily mass regularly are some of the most understanding and non-judgmental people you will ever meet. Just because they choose to dive deeper into their relationship with God shouldn't automatically put them into the condemning corner.

2. Getting in line to receive the Eucharist is actually so exciting!

I mean who wouldn't be excited to receive the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ?!

3. We all know we're broken and that life can get tough, that's why we choose to let God heal us.

Even in the dry seasons of our faith, we know God is the way, the truth, and the life, so why not keep chugging along?

4. Meeting someone who is also Catholic, commence  the celebration.

While everyone these days are offended by using God's name, finding someone who shares your faith opens the door to pretty much every topic without a filter!

5. Adoration is the single most beautiful sight you will ever see.

"That's it. That's all we need. Not much, right? It's just a piece of bread. But the power contained in that monstrance is enough to satisfy the deepest desires of every living being. Crazy."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
