It was spectacular. It was moms and dads and kids as far as the eye could see. It was bellies.
We loved each other and shored each other up. You know how the tardis is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside? That shrine, Immaculate Heart of Mary Shrine, in little Cache Creek, was bigger on the inside than on the outside. It was a little piece of heaven that gave us a picture of what life could be like, should be like, if we all chose to do God's will.
He was so present there. In the Blessed Sacrament, in the conversation, in the profound way that people interacted with each other. The Holy Spirit was so present there, in all His gifts
wisdom to come and be nurtured
knowledge shared and gleaned, to grow in faith
understanding open to the light of divine truth
right judgment choosing the good, the true and the beautiful
courage to live and speak God's truth
reverence in his presence
wonder and awe at His gift of these families
So holy, so humble, so happy. It's a beautiful thing.
You shoulda been there.
