As well, since I don't go to a 'trad' mass-the my priests have essentially said that before several times in their homilies-and it makes total sense. I mean that God is everywhere-in us and all around us. I love that quote and I believe it and really there's not that much difference between gnostic teachings and Catholic teachings. I have read the bible several times-I also skimmed-the gnostic bible while I was at Barnes&Noble with my mom-she kind of encouraged me to go ahead-especially since I think it was after we had seen The Da Vinci Code. And Stigmata is one of my favourite films as is End of Days-but enough on that....main point is that one does not necessairly have to go to a church for Jesus. Though that hour and a half of silence/meditation is a good thing-which does wonders&in my case I also like singing with my choir

The problem with this quote from the gnostic gospel of Thomas is that some will start to think that we don't need to go to Mass to receive the Holy Eucharist.  A former fallen friend that I used to go speckled trout fishing with used to say "this is God's cathedral" when we were fishing along side the trout creek.  The big problem is that he was saying God was there along side the trout creek rather than in a Catholic Church with the Tabernacle that holds the Eucharist.  John chapter 6 will show you just how much we do need to receive the Holy Eucharist.  There must be better movies for a young girl to watch rather than The Da Vinci Code, Stigmata and End of Days.  Don't believe everything you watch in a Hollywood movie.
