Thoughts on going to daily Mass (with three young children!)

Abigail has an inspiring post about the benefits her family has seen from attending daily Mass with their three kids under age six, as well as some tips for those who might be considering it. She writes:

If I'm asked why I drag a pack of restless young children to Mass each day, my simple answer is "because I need it." I need Mass. I need the Eucharist. I need that daily dose to get myself through the laundry washing, and the naughty chair enforcement, and the finding of the missing buckle shoes. I go to Mass nearly daily because I need Christ.

Be sure to read the rest. Great post.
