What is with all these rules about worship? Why do I need to go to mass? Can I not just try and be an honest, good person? Can't I spend my Sunday in the mountains or at the lake or on the river? Is that not a way of giving fitting worship to God? True, Jesus divinized our everyday activity, everything can be a prayer, an act of worship. He also gave us very specific commands concerning our worship. I try to address why he did so in this homily.
