Lord of Suprises And Unique Opportunities

Posted: September 5, 2015 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys

Today although a little under the weather I pressed on to serve as Extraordinary Minister of Communion for the healing mass which takes place only once a month in our Parish Auditorium.

For those who are early what takes place is the Jericho prayer followed by the Rosary.  Then praise and worship followed by Adoration then finally it ends with the EC proper. Whole session if you come at the very beginning, is easily 3 hours long. For most it’s only 2hrs.

Today the order of the session was slightly altered in that we began with the EC and ended with Adoration.  As my throat was feeling a little raspy, I was contemplating leaving after the EC. Afterall this morning after the morning EC followed by a parent’s prayer group meeting I managed to squeeze in about half an hour of quiet Adoration.  But the Lord had other plans for me! 

After communion as I was heading back to my seat the priest signalled to me to return to the altar. He then instructed me to bring the remaining hosts back to the tabernacle.  After I did that he informed me that he could not stay for the whole duration of the Adoration session.  And so instructed me to repose the Blessed Sacrament from the Monstrance when Adoration was over and keep it back in the tabernacle.

Although so unworthy the Lord granted me a unique opportunity to serve Him in a way I had never done nor ever hoped to be able to do.

With great reverence and love I thank You, my Lord and my God.  Amen
