Being in the actual church building is relaxing to me. Sometimes they will have the church open for adoration or confession, and I like being able to sit in the church at those times. When it is time for mass, it feels so different. All of the people bring out these nervous feelings in me, and make it hard to focus as much as I would like on the mass. I totally agree, the walk to and from communion is a most difficult walk for me. I very rarely go to communion. I really want to, though. It's frustrating.Dove said:I actually created a similar thread before.
I attend mass, but every week, I get a dreaded and whiny feeling about it. It wouldn't be as bad if we didn't have to face the congregation as we walk back from taking the communion, and didn't have to shake people's hands to give peace
