But no, it’s the mass of the faithful kneeling, standing, sitting together under the same room in His house, the mass of gazing on Father at the altar and what he does, hearing his voice (as prescribed) almost constantly, requiring (demanding) our attention.

And He? Gets a lot of lip service, He does. Priest keeps things moving right along. Few empty (of words) moments.
Not good, not good, not good . . .
