Understanding Indulgences is quite a difficult topic among Catholics. So it is expected that Protestants don't understand it ether. I came across a good explanation of it while listing to Catholic Answers Live. Patrick Madrid was the guest and did a fabulous job. It's around the 20 min mark. http://www.catholic.com/audio/podcast/ca070925a.mp3

Hehehehe..He's so cute! Ok now to the ranting!
Is this you at Mass? How many people at the Mass you go to feel like this? I know I did. This is all I herd "The Lord be with you, Bla bla bla bla.... bla. Go in peace to love and serve the Lord". I admit I'm not pumped every Sunday, but most I am.
Now the million dollar question. How do we help other parishioners who don't want to be there, get excited for Mass? (I really wish I knew this one) I know, it's not like Jesus will be there........ WAIT!! Jesus Christ is there!! Gee.. How stupid am I?
All joking aside how sad is it, that most Catholics are so use to the Mass they miss what it's all about. It's like if the President came to town. (pretend you would like that for argument sake) The whole town shows up, so they can wait to leave. Forget the Pres has a message about YOUR country. Forget that he didn't have to show up. Gosh..Forget it all!!! Now why in the world would we treat our creator like that? Our Redeemer, Savior? Our Lord and our God?!! Man, do we have ego issues or what!!??
Prayer. We need to pray. But, without doing more harm than good. What can we do? Any one got an idea?

As humans we constantly have a need or this desire to find out the "why", or "how" things work. The brain, cosmos and God. It's a search for God, weather one believes it is or not. There are those that put them selves first. They seek out the things that make em happy RIGHT NOW! Money, sex, drugs or may-be power. It's all a search for God. One may not know it, but in essence it is. Think about it. Why do we seek out God? Um..Um..Love, joy, happiness... How does all that swell stuff make us feel? Mmmm.. Good.. Now why does that guy every one knows, constantly trying to get a new piece of... uh..you know? Cuss it feels good! Even though that guy is going about his pursuit for happiness in a way that puts his joy above every one else. He is still trying to find happiness. But why is it, we have such a hard time getting it through our thick craniums, joy comes from something other than serving our selves.
Is this desire to seek out (or may-be a corrupted desire to seek) a result of sin? Since we cannot be in complete union with God here on earth. Do we see things so distorted, that the truth looks like a lie? All those philosophers throughout time asking "what is truth?". If our vision wasn't so distorted people could ask, "what is truth?" and we would be able to point saying "It's that, right there". (crude example I know)
Look at drugs. There are people that go to great lengths to get that next fix. To get that euphoric feeling back, AND in doing so distort their view/idea of reality. Why is our rejection of reality to the point of suffocating our senses? It really shows how far we've come. In Genesis, Adam hid when he knew he was outside of Gods grace. Now a days, we hide by pumping so many different chemicals into our brains, we're barley coherent. It's that hiding game little kids love to play. "You can't see me, if I can't see you."
