I have been meeting with a great group of people in a “Small Church Community” for a couple of years now. It has been such a blessing. Several months ago, one of the men was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He had surgery that was successful at removing the existing cancer. Once he recovered, he and his wife made several trips to different destinations. Unfortunately, after the last trip they discovered cancer in several new places in his body. He has been struggling with treatments and has been in a lot of pain. A priest friend of theirs offered to celebrate the Mass at their home. It was held tonight. Our small group attended and a couple of their other friends. It was intimate, peaceful, and hope-filled. The scripture readings were about trusting God, not to fear, and to know that God is love. God was certainly present there – particularly in the love shown between the man and his wife. It was a beautiful celebration.
