A grateful surprise in my life, one that elicits tears of joy and awe, is the sight of my three sons...and husband... in service, on the altar, during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
In fact, I believe God led us to this point. The parish we came to had older men serving and the time was coming for younger men to take the lead. And so an influx of young families came... somehow converged, hearts longing for reverence, to this Mass they had not grown up with. God instilled in my husband a great faith, like the one mentioned in this video below. (Tweeted by http://catholicdadshq.blogspot.com/ ) In our 8 years at this parish my husband, very early on, felt called to learn and then train our sons and others to serve the Traditional Latin Mass. This video is further training!
Today, I will have my sons watch this video as a reminder of their great privilege and awesome responsibility. Altar boy...YOU are a catechism!
The Mass IS a moment like no other, the representation of Calvary, the unbloody sacrifice and this is a video every Catholic Mass-goer should watch.
Now, after seeing it....ALL of us need to LIVE it! Lord, I pray to give You my full attention and reverence.
