Little steps are made; a slow walk begins accompanied by eyes fixed on a huge cross.
A heart is beating with a mind filled with voices shouting out “I am broken, sinful, filthy, unworthy and everything but your child Lord”
In the silence, I say, “My heart Lord yearns for you and it is restless until it rests in you.” As you enter, I am consumed by this immense peace. I know that the God of my life has entered me. A wonderful silent journey begins and my entire being is being healed and liberated once again. . As I kneel, I allow my heart to be poured out to you and in that silence; I await to hear your voice. You do speak to me in that small gentle voice, I hear it. You affirm me of my identity; you open the ears of my heart to truth and truth alone. Once again, I am reminded and affirmed of my decision to say my “Yes” to you and my heart is overjoyed.
Truly Lord, here in this time, here in this place, here we are standing face to face. Here in my heart, here in my life, YOU are here. Here for the broken, here for the strong, here in this temple I belong. Here in my hearts, here in my life, YOU ARE HERE. What an amazing time with you, as I hear your voice in this entire half an hour of my life. The choice to come for daily mass is always worth it Lord!
