What distracts you at Mass? Satan hates that you are there, hates that you participate in the offering of our Lord and of ourselves to God Almighty. Distractions are his snares.

Some things he tries:
lack of reverence
people talking
crying children
inappropriate dress
horrendous music
homilies with theological errors
uncomfortable environment
much more

Yet, despite this we are in the presence of God, surrounded by all the angels and saints. That Mass is connected to every other Mass that was and ever will be offered, together with all the faithful throughout time participating. The connection to Our Lord is not only spiritual, but physical. We are there as Heaven touches earth, blessed to be a part of it -- or oblivious to it.
