Do not be misled by the title……I am not going to preach….I just forced myself to go today….with God’s help I made it through. My surgery will be next week…then it will be months before I am healed enough to attend Mass again.
Those that are healthy won’t understand….not completely. Missing Mass…..missing that opportunity to join with God…with Christ…with our Church family is so difficult! Yet attending today was rejuvenating….calming……soothing…..it provided the security I needed. The knowledge, or rather reinforcement, that I am not alone…..that we are a body…..unique in our abilities and gifts that we provide.
Kneeling next to our son…..I could feel the calm….the hand reaching down……I am being watched over…protected….just as I try to reach out and protect my son. His ultimate hand is outstretched…..His eyes are watching…….He will be with me next week as I undergo another surgery…hopefully the last for a long time!

When a friend of Christ is prevented from receiving Him in Holy Communion, He comes to His friend by means of a marvelous spiritual communion. You faithfully visited Christ many times in His home. He will surely visit you when you are unable to come to Him. I join many others in praying daily for you and your family. May the Lord bless and keep you always in his care!
Thank you! Appreciate the words of encouragement and prayers!
