Ordinary Time



After the retreat ended yesterday afternoon, I felt called to attend Holy Spirit Church in Berkeley.  I attended Mass there as a graduate student whenever I could find a parking space. My prayer yesterday was, “Lord, if you want me to attend Mass, then help me find a parking space.” A few minutes after 5:00pm when I was about to give up and drive all the way home, I found a spot–a tight spot–but I got my car in that space.  And I made it to Mass. I remember quite a few times I was brought to tears attending Mass there.  Yesterday was no different. The priest called all those having birthdays in October to walk up to the sanctuary. Back in graduate school if that happened, which I don’t recall it ever did, I would have stayed rooted in my pew.  But being the braver version of myself today, I marched right up there with the other October birthdays and received a blessing.  I figure if someone wants to pray over me–go right ahead.  Who doesn’t need positive energy sent their way?

Today is Day 13 of the Write 31 Days series. You can find my other posts in this series here.
