Just a note about the Eucharist

today. After I got back to my seat, I dissolved in tears due to the fact I felt clean. Honestly, I didn't feel dirty before I went to the altar, but after I got back to my seat, I felt clean inside and out.

I have a grateful heart today.

Isn't it interesting, the variety of feelings we get from it. Sunday had a bit of a "clean" feeling for me also b/c two things had happened during the week. I had inadvertently offended someone I never meant to (sometimes my humor is a little too over the top for some people and I can on occasion tread a boundary), and had to make a bit of amends for that with her. The other was I was just sort of dealing with this "I'm ok, I know God likes me, but I'm just feeling a little 'flawed' for lack of a better term," feeling all week. So this week it made me feel not so much "clean" but "repaired"!

That is very beautiful and at the heart of the sacramental and intimate interaction with God.

Thank you for sharing this.

I really thought a lot about this during my theology class last night, when we were discussing the efficacy of sacraments.
