Some days I linger in the nave for over an hour after 6:15 AM mass. I pray the rosary, I read scripture, I lift my friends, family and strangers to the Lord, I journal. Sometimes I read a spiritually worthy work. Currently I am reading The Apostolic Letter MULIERIS DIGNITATEM of the Supreme Pontiff JOHN PAUL II on the Dignity and Vocation of Women on the Occasion of the Marian Year. It happens to be one of the most enlightening and rewarding pieces my mind has ever consumed.
The banquet table has been cleared. And from time to time I raise my eyes to gaze at the Tabernacle where the resurrected body of my Lord is safe. It’s as though I am now spending time with him in his living room.
Our bond does not require speaking. We’re just together. The flame of the Holy Spirit in our midst warms my soul. The crackle of its fire adds more peace to an already tranquil moment in my life.
I bask in the solitude that is not solitude. It is, rather, the infilling of the Presence of God – ultimate peace.
