they discovered something – something inside themselves that called out for a better, deeper, more meaningful experience of God in their lives – and they found it in the Eucharist.
Every time a group reaches this point it is an inspiration. One had a spouse for many years whose faith practice intrigued him – he came to discover something about her and found something for himself. Another had been born
Catholic but never really connected with her faith. From a desire to help her children she inspired a response in her husband. He came along for the ride, as it were, but changed and found a treasure. Another had been the carer for an older relative and this lead her on a journey of discovery and a yearning for Jesus.
Each one of them tells a different story as a starting point, yet all came together at the Eucharist. Our parish is enriched by their joy and not a few “oldies” remarked how it had sparked a new interest in their own lifelong faith
which to a fair extent had been taken for granted.
Nowhere is our common union as a community expressed so eloquently as in this beautiful growth and development of the journey from the head to the heart. Being part of that journey is one of my great joys.
