The healing Mass is such a powerful display of God's love and awesome power. I thought I knew God and myself until I found that I truly knew neither. I searched for my soul with limited success because I searched selfishly using my will, I bent life to my will, I existed for my own will. It was not until I attended this mass that the true peace of God's love came upon me and showed me the error of my way. I was healed of body and spirit and discovered that God had never forsaken me...no, he had been with me all along. Waiting for me to open my eyes. This is a glorious and powerful night, I urge anyone who is curious to attend.
I was listening to a woman talk about her daughter who recently died of cancer and left behind two small children. She said, "We prayed and prayed for healing, but I did not think that God had in mind spiritual healing. That is exactly what happened. My daughter grew so close to God and received such spiritual healing through her battle with cancer, as did her husband and much of our family, including me." I sensed no bitterness or anger towards God, just a realization of the amazing spiritual healing that He was able to do through tragedy.
You breathed in me and gave me life.
You placed Your Spirit as a holy flame burning deep within me.
You whispered Your love for me
But my belief of unworthiness deafened my ears.
You showed me love through the beauty of the world around me,
But my vision was darkened by doubts and fears.
You came into the world as one of us.
LOVE BECAME INCARNATE!
You healed my blindness and deafness
Revealing the fire within me- Your Spirit of love
With eyes wide open, this fire- Your love- becomes visible in all people- in all creation.
You fuel the flames with Your grace through prayer, Word, and Sacrament.
You send me forth
So I can be like you…..
