(My curiosity is going to cost me my reputation again. Anyway, here it goes...)
In Catholicism, how important is attending the mass, going to Confession and other liturgical rituals?
Do these activities have anything to do with getting to Heaven or Salvation?
Why do they have to participate in these activities?
Are they doing these things because
- They are saved?
- They want to be saved and they want go to Heaven?
- They are pious?
- They want to preserve the tradition?
- They do it because others are doing it?
