Some quiet time before God
Just got back from Holy Hour. What a refreshing way to spend some quiet time, in Eucharistic adoration, face to face with God! And yet, only six people in attendance. Besides the priest, I was the youngest at 52.

We read psalms, sang, two of us received absolution for our sins, and had Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. During Reconciliation, there was plenty of time for quiet meditation. I thought about how skewed our priorities have become. We Catholics believe Jesus is physically present on the altar. Tonight at Saints Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church, we had an opportunity to see Him and talk for an hour. Out of several hundred parishioners, 6 took advantage. I wonder how many were home watching Survivor.
