Fr. Andrew was his usual self, looking for any opportunity to pick on me. Then it happened, he turned to me and with a very serious look reminded me..." you know this is your last time as a lay person, it will be very emotional." I shared with him that it is hitting me that this is the last times and that the entire lenten season has been very emotional for me.
In many ways this is probably how it should be with all of us. Each season, each day, we need to pray that we are fully involved in our relationship with Christ. Our eyes, our hearts, our ears, and our minds need to be opened and ready to receive the presence of Christ.
I pray for all of you that this day is special and may the peace and love of Christ be with you always!
