Snow day

An unexpected day off sometimes means an extra opportunity for Mass. I didn't get there yesterday, but today was snow day #2 and enough of the stuff was cleared from sidewalks to make it easy to get to my church just around the block. Once I went on a snow day and there were just five of us to celebrate, a wonderfully intimate celebration of the Paschal Mystery. Today the assembly, though small, numbered much more than that.

Being Catholic means having a community to join with in prayer and worship. A good way to start the day.
