Arrive at Mass early, 5.) Bless yourself (consciously), 6.) Dress for a wedding, 7.) Sit in a seat that minimizes distractions, 8.) Genuflect, 9.) Go to Mass at a time that minimizes distractions, 10.) Pray before Communion, 11.) Receive Eucharist on the tongue from a priest, 12.) Kneel with eyes closed and pray in silence after Communion AND after Mass, 13.) Go to Adoration outside of Mass.
