We Have Become Robots
How many times do we just fall into our prayers mechanically? Everyone is guilty of it. In Theology of the Body, we learn that when we talk to someone and kind of "zone out," we're not acknowledging the person of Christ within them whole-heartedly.
It's same for Mass. When we say what we believe, and we're not really paying attention, it sort of us ignoring the words that the Holy Spirit inspired in the Church, and then we ignore that big guy up there who Loves us.
The next Mass you are in, challenge yourself to be fully present; I don't just mean in the Creed. Awake, O sleeper (Ephesians 5:14) and be a living member of the Body of Christ.
