    but I was the Catholic whose favorite part of the Mass was "the Mass is ended, go in peace".

    My husband, on the other hand, has left and returned several times. Some people do seem to have a need for a spiritual connection and find it in the rituals they grew up with. It does seem to help him with his tendency towards depression. He pays no attention to what the bishops spew, but the whole going-to-church experience seems to benefit him.

      A quiet environment that in theory is not disturbed.

      Sometimes it is a fleeting moment only until one can face the outside world again.

      The routine of starting or ending a 7 day weekly schedule?

      Any of this make sense?

      I have had the same calming experience sailing or flying my own puddle jumper.
