View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Perpetual Adoration

I love to go to the St. Padre Pio Chapel to pray. But my parish has a wonderful opportunity for prayer that I have too often neglected - a perpetual adoration chapel.

People take turns throughout the day and night to pray. Yesterday and today I went in there after morning Mass to say my rosary, and to pray for some special intentions.

We are blessed to have this opportunity for prayer always there.

Oh, was that photo taken in your parish? What a beautiful Monstrance to hold Our Lord. I am firmly of the belief that we should use our best ability to make our churches a beautiful home for the Lord, and hopefully make our souls just as beautiful.

Jose - the Parish is St. Theodore's in Gates, a Rochester suburb.

Barb - no, that is not ours. I have hesitated to take a picture of ours because I don't want to disturb the people who are praying in the chapel.
