We should not stay away

Today's first reading advises us to be sure to attend Mass.
Let us hold unwaveringly to our confession that gives us hope, for he who made the promise is trustworthy. We must consider how to rouse one another to love and good works. We should not stay away from our assembly, as is the custom of some, but encourage one another, and this all the more as you see the day drawing near.
-- Hebrews 10:23-25

A prayerful relationship with Christ, and thoughtful reflection on His Word, are important. But we need our fellow Christians, and we need our Eucharistic encounter with the actual Body of Christ. Don't stay away from the assembly of the Mass.
