Have you ever thought?
Mass is boring! I have no idea what Father is talking about.
The readings at Mass have nothing to do with my life.
ANY GIVEN SUNDAY is a website developed to help you better prepare for Mass. The weekly reflections are written by
some of the best known Catholic youth speakers, musicians and comedians in the country. The reflections are relevant,
understandable, personal and geared toward 13-18 year-old students.
They are written for you!
Tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell the world how cool it is to prepare for Mass on Any Given Sunday!
