If you don’t feel in need of God’s mercy don’t go to Mass, says Pope
#28
I did not know for years that I needed God's mercy. That is the era of the 19 years between confessions.  We were a 'resurrection people' you see and no longer needed penance. Father said that life is like a golf tournament and Jesus paid the fee and we just need to go and play golf.

But it was still a mortal sin when I missed Mass.

But nowadays folks blow off Mass like it was nothing. The thing is if it is just a meal or show or social time or entertainment, then why go. How many Catholics realize that it is The Holy Sacrifice?

Remarks like this, and there has been many, just confirm the uncatechised in their ignorance.
