Well here we are locked down again and not able to say Mass inside the church. I hope once again this causes us to miss the Eucharist profoundly and realize what an amazing gift we have. At every Mass, ordinary bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ right before our eyes. The bread and wine don’t look different outwardly, yet Jesus is present in them Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. God is really with us and has provided for us a way to see him, touch him, and even consume him.
Isn’t it awesome that we don’t have to wait until we are in heaven to see him and be with him? Every day in prayer we have the opportunity to give thanks to God and praise him for everything he has done for us. We may be sinners, but God is so merciful he holds nothing back from us. In his great love he continues to reveal himself to us.
So how will we respond during the surging pandemic ? Praise and worship is the only appropriate response to God. So let us join what the heavenly choir is singing even during these times: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty!” (Rev. 4:8)
DeColores, Deacon Doug
