I was blessed tonight, is such a beautiful way while attending Holy Mass. I was planning on attending, but found myself in the midst of a much more beautiful gift. I wanted to spend this day with our Lord and celebrate the Feast of St. Ambrose…… It seems he took the back seat tonight.
Before Holy Mass began, in prayer, I offered this Mass for all the intentions of each and every one of my followers on social media.
I THOUGHT Holy Mass was for the feast of St. Ambrose BUT as it began, it was for our Holy Mother’s Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. I wasn’t aware of this and was quite surprised, in a very JOYFUL way. Holy Mass tonight, was also for the celebration of the opening of the Holy Door at the Vatican. The Parish I attended tonight, is one of the designated Holy Door Parishes to which all Catholics in San Diego can make a Pilgrimage to during the Holy Year of Mercy.
It was a pure gift to be there tonight. Although the actual blessing of the Holy Door is not until Sunday, it was truly remarkable to be here tonight and the gift of surprise was unlike any I have received. Let the mercy flow, Lord!
Thank you Mama Mary. Thank you!
After the Holy Door of St Peter’s is open on December 8, the Holy Doors of the other papal basilicas will be opened in subsequent days. As well, as a sign of communion of the whole Church, the pope has requested that every diocese in the world open a similar “Door of Mercy” for the local celebrations of the Jubilee. – See more at: http://www.missionsandiego.org/pope-francis-presents-bull-of-indiction-of-jubilee-year-of-mercy/#sthash.RkeoWYRO.dpuf
