Are you BORED? Not likely, given the endless opportunities today to see, share, post, watch, and like. So are you bored? No way! (Except maybe at Mass.)

We want the Mass to entertain, make us laugh, give us foot tapping music and sound-bite theology, and get it done in under an hour. Yet every Sunday many of us tune out.

Author Tim O’Malley, in a series of reflections on every part of the Mass, challenges us to turn the idea of boredom on its head, calling boredom—the “good” boredom that opens us to the quiet interior space where we can encounter God—a “sweet gift.”

It is there that full participation in the Mass becomes possible—the potential to be transfixed by a ritual, to contemplate the readings, to savour the Eucharist. To be fruitfully “bored again.”

Become a ‘Bored Again’ Catholic and rediscover the power of the Mass to change your life – and the entire world.
