Well I am sitting at home with a vicious cold (this is Day 3, and yes I am counting because I hate being sick and I usually end up spending all my sick time sitting around feeling sorry for myself, although this time I have spent some of it re-watching season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so at least it’s been productive). Since I have a cold, you would think that would have given me time to post earlier, but no. Procrastination takes precedence, people!
Anyway, I had a cool experience last weekend- I went into the perpetual adoration chapel at my church for the first time. For non-Catholics, I guess it’s a bit of a stretch to understand, but click the link and give it a shot. For me, it was very moving because it’s really the first time I understood the Eucharist (which is good, since RCIA is drawing to a close…)- I definitely felt a/the Presence (not sure what the right grammar is here), and it was humbling. Many, many people have told me that participating in adoration is a special experience, and I see why now. If anyone happens to read this and hasn’t gone, please do, because I can guarantee it will be a powerful experience, even if it is only for a few minutes.
Now, I must go. “Storyteller” is next in the queue. The funny awaits!
