No need for church?

I came across this great quote of St. John Chrysostom in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (Paragraph 2179):

"You cannot pray at home as at church, where there is a great multitude, where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: the union of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, the prayers of the priests."

This quote is a great reminder for anyone who is tempted to think they do not need to attend church. For anyone who thinks it is just between "me and God." When we attend church, we do indeed cry out to God "as from one great heart." How important it is to join our brothers and sisters, in our "union of minds!"

Together, Christians praise and worship God. May our voices continue to become one, beautiful, harmonious offering to God!

God bless,
