I am a cradle Roman Catholic. The last twenty years or so have not been a practicing Catholic. I usually give something up for Lent, but unless my parents are in town, somebody is getting married or somebody is being buried, I do not attend Mass. This has been bothering me for a while now, so for Lent this year I am making an effort to attend Mass in addition to giving up alcohol.
I confused some friends and coworkers when they saw me on Ash Wednesday, but I even made to Mass the following weekend. I have elected to go to Saturday Vigil mass, but it is still mass.
I know I will have a margarita when Lent is over, the question will be: Will I still go to Mass?
