Bored Again Catholic

Given the plethora of opportunities to see, share, post, watch, and like “we escape into the bliss of constant entertainment and soon enough the threat of boredom is eliminated.”

Likewise, 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. This desire for entertainment is perilous!

Tim O’Malley, in reflections on 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.
