After all the things we got into

Just got back from Ash Wednesday Mass. I've now been to Mass twice at St. George's, and I have to say that I'm not terribly pleased with it. The fact that I get to participate in the most holy sacrifice is amazing, of course, but the lack of reverence and respect for not just for the Eucharist but for other members of the congregation and the sanctuary itself is shocking. I've noticed people holding full conversations during Mass. The time of adoration after communion is practically non-existent. I prayed extra hard for charity tonight.

It's particularly frustrating because this church is the only Catholic church in the RC that is in line with Rome. One of the selling points on our new house (for me, anyway) was that St. George's is literally a three minute walk from our front door. 1:45 if I walk fast. My other option would be to drive to St. Thomas', which would be only a slight improvement, really.

I think Franciscan ruined me.
