We are all called to active participation in the Mass. Bishop Barron explores how this does not mean always having to be doing something or saying something but rather, it also means actively participating in silence and stillness. In a world of noise and bustle, the Mass at some points provides active engagement with God by simply being present. “The Mass is not just a religiously themed jamboree”; it is a place of Divine encounter.
