When my son’s best friend died, I went over to my church and scheduled him to be specifically prayed for during the petitions at a couple of Masses. Today was one of them. Mass was at 7:00 am. Even with all my good intentions, I was a little late. I heard the Gospel, there was no homily, and we went right into the petitions. I was glad I was there to hear his name and know that he was personally included in the sacrifice of the Mass. After Mass, they brought out the monstrance and there was a time of Eucharistic Adoration. To me, that is one of the most meaningful ways to pray, so I stayed for a few minutes extra. As I was leaving I saw a friend and we chatted for a bit. I’m always happy to talk with a friend. In the parking lot on the way to my car, I saw 2 young bucks walking through. They were beautiful, calm, and peaceful. All this happened before 8:00 am. It was such a wonderful way to begin my day.
I Found God today in a blessing of a morning.
