In my yearning for the Lord, I had hoped for a quiet Mass filled with contemplation. And what I got was a Mass filled with loud whispering right behind me.
I went out of the confessional that day in a kind of stupor. I was “astounded,” as the Scriptures often say of those who encountered the power of God. And then I sat down in the pew for Mass. At the time of the Gospel, I listened in wonder to the story of the Presentation of the Baby Jesus in the Temple, which we hear every year during the Christmas season and on February 2nd.
Celebrating Las Posadas is a wonderful opportunity for our Anglo and Hispanic communities, to join efforts and celebrate together this excellent way to prepare for the coming of our Lord. After the Posadas you and your family will find yourselves more prepared to receive our Lord and Savior on Christmas Eve!
