Carol and her tour group were up early yesterday morning to join the throngs in moving to their seats for the canonization. A few reflections:
*Even with all that is going on in our Church, I see firsthand that our Church is alive. I was surrounded by thousands and thousands of believers, celebrating the lives of people who lived their faith – now saints to serve as examples to all of us.
*I feel so blessed to experience this time and place. Celebrating Mass with so many who share my passion for my faith, my passion for Jesus – I am not alone and will never be alone.
From Pope Francis’ homily: “Christ gives all and he asks all: he gives a love that is total and asks for an undivided heart. He gives himself to us as the living bread; can we give him crumbs in exchange?”
