Chritmas thoughts

Last night, at the Vigil Mass for Christmas, I stood in the back of the Church waiting to process in with the acolytes. As I stood there waiting, the Chritmas lights blazed in the church, the main lights not yet on. The choir above me in the loft sang beautifully, and I looked over this scene and thought to myself, this is why I am a Catholic. The reality of what we profess to believe was palpable, and ther was no where else I wanted to be at that moment. May you experience the peace and joy of this day, may you walk in the light of the newly risen Son.
Peace,
Deacon John
