(1/2) It had been bothering me: How is it that simply missing mass is a MORTAL sin? It seems a bit convenient, doesn't it? That the organization that depends financially on our attendance makes our attendance mandatory in the highest order... So, I've been meditating. I haven't figured it out 100% yet, but, there, in back of my mind, I think it has to do with time. How it isn't linear from a divine point of view. More like a tapestry upon which numerous heptagons are stitched, each a week.

@Gabriel I think of it also, maybe, as an individual obligation oriented towards the communal: it is the community that has to come together to be able experience itself as whole? Not that the more skeptical angle is wrong, per se.
