Forgive my slowness, but what do you mean?

If you have a personal relationship  with Our Lord, why attend mass?

Since it's not supposed to be about 'having a relationship' as though Our King is little better than a boyfriend/girlfriend (not that that doesn't mean anything, but speaking relatively), but belonging to/practising the Faith reverently and because that is the invitation to closeness, not an impediment to it.

Hence, how can you have that closeness without practising in generally and attending Mass in particular?

Plus, is it any wonder that when seen as a 'relationship', people then treat churches as no better than somewhere they're hanging out in?
