This first appeared in my blogalogue with Tom McGrath. I loved it so much that I added it to our “Words of Wisdom” quotes and now I want to share it with you on Christmas Day. Tom’s belief is so pure, gentle and generous that it is perfect to help us celebrate the Birth of our Savior.
On my way to Mass on Sunday I can walk through the parking lot full of judgments about my fellow parishioners and their personalities, their lack of driving skills, what they’re wearing, etc.
But after kneeling in my pew and watching them stream up to Communion, their spiritual hunger on open display, I am transformed and realize the truth of the hymn, “and we, though many, throughout the earth, we are one body in this one Lord.”
And that’s what gives me hope for the human adventure. And that’s what keeps me coming back for more.
Wishing you a joyous and peace-filled Christmas. God bless us all.
