366 Project - Day 94 - "Abstract (Looking Up During Mass)"
April 03, 2016 - "Abstract (Looking Up During Mass)"
On this beautiful Divine Mercy Sunday I'm sitting in St. Matthew's Church in Norwalk celebrating Mass, which is being held for the intentions of the soul of my brother Peter.
I thought I was going to be able to get through this one without crying - and I did manage to get through most of it. Once I received Communion and knelt down to pray, the tears began flowing.
I'll never really understand the reasons "why" things happen the way that they do. We're just not meant to know such things. What I do know, however, is that I have faith. Strong faith. One day we will be united again. Of that I am sure... and that is enough for me.
As Catholics, we believe that God calls us to become nothing less than saints. That is our goal during our worldly life: To willingly pick up the crosses we are given, and walk with them for as long as the journey is meant to last... To live a life in accordance to His holy will... To await His call and, we hope, to be worthy of His promise of eternal life in the glory of heaven - surrounded by His love.
I pray that I may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
