I just finished watching Gone Baby Gone. Oh my gosh. I have never finished watching a movie and felt so damn conflicted. Wow. As I write this I am still between tears and relief. Ugh. I highly recommend this movie. Who knew that Casey Affleck was so talented and amazing. Oh shit. Here come the tears. New topic, new topic!!!!! I'll write more about it some other time.
Today was Maundy Thursday, and mass was at 8pm. It was a really beautiful mass. We same some beautiful songs. I think I will share. Perhaps they will serve to inspire.
We remember how you loved us to your death,
and still we celebrate, for you are with us here;
And we believe that we will see you when you come,
in your glory, Lord, we remember, we celebrate,
Vs. 1: Here, a million wounded souls are
yearning just to touch you and be healed;
Gather all your people, and hold them to your heart.
Vs. 2: Now we recreate your love we
bring the bread and wine to share a meal;
Sign of grace and mercy, the presence of the Lord.
Vs. 3: Christ, the Father's great "Amen" to
all the hopes and dreams of every heart;
Peace beyond all telling, and freedom from all fear.
Vs. 4: See the face of Christ revealed in
every person standing by your side;
Gift to one another, and temples of your love.
And my new-favorite song-
Tomorrow's Good Friday mass is going to be celebrated by the bishop, and I am really stoked about being able to attend. Bishop Curlin is the man who inspired me to pursue Catholicism, and I look forward to reconnecting with him. I'll give an update later.
