Churches are usually wonderful places to find a little bit of peace and to withdraw from the noise of the street. Occasionally, that peace is shattered by unnecessary chat, and celebrations that attract people who forget to leave the noise at the door! Those wonderful celebrations of life – Baptism, Holy Communion, Marriage, are often spoiled by the attention given to the monetary and material aspects of the celebration.
Is God able to penetrate through the noise of coins clattering, and our desire to want, want, want?
Today, let us try to reduce that noise and focus on the things that matter, and let God penetrate our hearts and minds.
Lord, you have the message of eternal life – may I accept and live this message with an open heart.
