😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace and presence be with you. Last Saturday I had the privilege of participating in my favorite Mass of the year…the Easter Vigil. I think that’s partly because we get to spend some time in a dimly lit church, which for reasons I don’t yet know, I find extremely peaceful. I’ve been participating in Mass at St. Albert the Great Church for about three years now and it has a rather unique set up. As you enter the church and look toward the alter, you’ll notice 1) there isn’t a wall on the back side of the alter and 2) there is another seating section behind the alter. Essentially, the alter is centered between the church side and the chapel side of the building. Also, the crucifix hangs over the alter and is two sided, so that Jesus can be viewed from both the church and chapel. This set up has come in pretty handy with COVID social distancing, especially when the restriction started loosening up, the church side when back to regular seating and chapel side retained social distancing.
Sitting in the pew on the church side, talking with God before Easter Vigil Mass, God showed me something that I hadn’t notice before. I even took a picture so I could share it with you.
Looking at Jesus on the cross, then looking beyond the cross into the chapel, God told me, “The cross is not the end. Your death is not the end. Look beyond the cross and you will find there is so much more. Death is just an entry point to far greater living than what life on earth has to offer. Don’t fear drawing near to the cross. I’m here to bring you to the other side.”
Bless others and be blessed.
