Attended a different church this morning for Mass and it happened that the Mass was said by the visiting priest who's giving a mission at that parish. From his talk, I came away realizing that we human beings are the most marvelous of all that God has created. Look at yourself ~ we can think, talk, reason, are intelligent, and possess so many other unique qualities when compared with other creatures. We are the crown achievement in God's creation. We should never ever degrade ourselves (or others). Besides, we've even been made worthy to receive the Lord himself in the form of bread and wine. All this calls for great rejoicing!
