What started off as a rainy, gross day actually turned out to be very nice. The sun decided to peak it's face around the noon hour. It was just in time for our niece's Holy Communion.
Of course, Brian and I were a few minutes late to the church, but we managed to still walk in with several others. We sat down and joined in the mass.
When mass is directed toward children I always find it interesting to really listen to what the Priest is saying. I enjoy the way the Priest will take it down a few notches so the kids understand. Today was no different, the Priest was doing his sermon on the Crucifixion and "knowing the voice of God". The Priest said something that really made me think. He said, "Those who do it all right still have to suffer. Look at Jesus, he did nothing wrong, he committed no sins and he suffered for all of us. So sometimes for us to have the one thing that we really want, we have to suffer." As the Priest was saying this, I thought of Wyatt.
Sometimes it's amazing the signs that we get and where we get them. Today, mine came during the communion, where we remembered Christ's death and I remembered my son's.
