The theme for me today is "Joy." It started at morning Mass, celebrating the Feast of St. Bartholomew, Apostle. Kneeling before the altar, I feel the joy of worshipping God, adoring him. The Gospel reading from John 1 tells how Nathanael (Bartholomew) found Jesus. And I feel that joy of finding the Lord. The Communion verses from Luke 22 read: "I will give you the kingdom that my Father gave to me, and in that kingdom you will eat and drink at my table." Hearing them read certainly brings even more joy to the heart.
