Something to ponder….
What exactly is NOT beautiful about worshiping our Lord at Mass?
Cardinal Nguyen Van Thuan turned a concentration camp into a cathedral, the palm of his hand into an altar, his pocket into a tabernacle and darkness into Light with the grace of our Lord.
See yourself at a Wedding. Is the food not to your liking? Are the Groomsmen not wearing what you would like? Is the music not in the right key for your ear? Is the Wedding not up to your expectations?
What do you suppose the Bride and Groom’s mind is on this day? Is it the wedding or the Marriage? If she messes up her words, it is His that have already held True and it doesn’t negate the validity of the Marriage. It’s happening, everyone is there, its the most beautiful thing in this world.
We are a sorry lot. We often complain about the wedding without taking the Marriage into account. What makes the Liturgy strikingly beautiful, is the reality that our Lord entered into and rose above all that “ugliness” of ours and we can too, because He tells us to follow Him.
“Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb.”
It is a blessing just to be there. We should be grateful simply for that.
One response to “Beautiful Liturgy”
We go to Mass to bring our love and adoration to God. It is in this that the beauty shines. Too often we want Mass to entertain us, impress us, make us feel this way or that. Mass is FOR GOD. We are FOR GOD. So if the homily is a little dry, or the choir off key, we can acknowledge our imperfections before GOD and how silly we must seem and redouble our effort and give Him more. . .Give Him all. God bless. TOTUS TUUS MARIA!
