My mom and I attended Mass this afternoon. During the celebration, a teenaged girl was Baptized and Confirmed. The baptismal font is near the entrance to the church where my mom and I were seated, so we had a very good view. As the priest started saying the prayers, the young woman started crying. It was such an emotional moment for her, she cried through the whole thing. Then, she was choked up trying to respond to the priest when she was Confirmed. It was quite heartwarming to see how much receiving these Sacraments meant to the girl. I think I should be more grateful for the grace I have received through these Sacraments so many years ago. And I should be more willing to use that grace for others.
I Found God today in a young woman’s excitement to.be Baptize and Confirmed.
