Since 2010 I've felt that, aside from my husband obviously, I'm deprived of caring about or for others - in person. Both my family and in-laws are estranged. Our next-door-neighbor of 25 years recently died. This is not a friendly neighborhood. Ironically, it turns out he's a (mostly never-attending) member of my parish. His wife apparently seldom attends Mass either. Prior to converting to Catholicism, I gave three Protestant churches in this small city "a go." Put 100% into it. Aside from worship and prayer, I was actively involved in helping out with programs, altar guild, choir, etc. No friends came of it. Scant love or caring. Unfortunately I'm now unable to commit to my Catholic parish as deeply and intensely as those Protestant churches due to long work hours and contractual obligations. When I do attend 8:15 a.m. Mass, of course it's the English service. Nearly all are quite elderly or are retirees who seem intent on enjoying their retirement and being left alone otherwise. As the Hispanic folk here are a lot friendlier than my fellow Whites, I'll presume the Spanish Mass is a warmer, happier environment...but I'm monolingual. Aside from my husband and cat, I'd sincerely like to have PEOPLE to care about. To listen to (troubles), laugh with, share meals together. In real life. Well that's plenty enough said. Please say an occasional prayer for me.
