faith in the desert: February 2006 Archives

moments of grace

| | Comments (6)

We've had a fairly low-key celebration of 32 years of wedded life today. Met up at noon to go to daily Mass at St John the Evangelist parish, talked afterwards with the DRE about the last confirmation session (yes, I have more to say on that topic too - later, later). Then this evening we went to dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant followed by some time at the local adoration chapel before coming home.
While we were in adoration, a young couple came in with a toddler - I would guess maybe 18 months to 2 years old. The child came in the door and in typical age behaviour was not interested in being quiet. But the words from her mouth on walking through the door "Baby Jesus! Baby Jesus!" were so beautiful and precious that I just had to smile. The parents and child stayed for maybe 5 minutes, and mom was helping the child to sit or kneel. It was so wonderful to have a glimpse into the life of a couple who is earnestly trying to raise a child up in the way she should go.
As they walked out of the chapel, I reached into my pocket and gave her a hand knotted rosary. I felt that such good behaviour should be rewarded in some way and that is what I had with me. I'm glad that I always carry an extra rosary with me for just such occasions!

I'm a day late (and a dollar short, too!)


But here is this week's Spanning the Globe
I notice more than one reference to that wonderful and mystical prayer, the rosary.
Actually, while you're over reading TSO, scroll up to his post on Evangelicals and others praying the rosary.

Isaiah 65:24

(This was sent to me. I have no direct knowledge of this incident but also have no reason to doubt its veracity)

This story was written by a doctor who worked in South Africa...
