Gratitude

        Went to vigil Mass today.  When I heard "this is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world" proclaimed, I felt tremendous gratitude.  In life we are grateful for the many things others do for us, but the Lord taking away our sins ~ that's in a totally different league, for it affects our eternal destiny.  If sins are not taken away, forget about a smooth journey to heaven.  When I realized this, I was deeply moved by God's generosity and love.

  1. I had a similar experience just after receiving communion on Sunday: gratitude, some relief, and a sense of joy.
