It is interesting to note that one needs grace to be at a particular church, and I have personally experienced this all these years. I started off with St Michael’s Church. Newly converted I was full of zest and fervour for the charismatic way of worship which I am so comfortable with. I also can remain silent and not raise hands to worship our Lord. I am open and I can adapt to the worship styles and I thank the Holy Spirit for this.
There was so much that I learned from the recent recollection that it would be worthwhile sharing; yet, I have been so busy that I have not had time to re-read all that I managed to keep note of. . .
Perhaps I can share that one of the first things that I have put into practice is this… when one enters the church, one normally would make the sign of the cross with holy water and enter. But now I add a prayer as taught by the visiting priest to us.
May this holy water and the Precious Blood of Jesus wash away all my sins, O Lord!
Our Lady of FATIMA has just arrived, hence the excitement of all. I could not go and welcome the statue although I did make it on the second afternoon. More posts later on!
The above are flowers for the Catholic Church, that is true but I would like to talk about the lady who is very prayerful. She is independent although she cannot walk far without the help of her vehicle. I have spoken to her and I do love the way she spends her time praying in spite of her age and her health. May I add that her example is reflected in the family especially the daughter and her husband. It is such a joy, is it not?
