The Mass is a big part of what drew me to the Catholic Church. It's got so many moving moments that it's hard for it not to speak to you. On a lot of different levels.
What's the best part? When I started to understand the whole Real Presence thing, I had my answer. It's the consecration.
Given that, the elevation right after the consecration makes sense. Literally, stopping Mass - just for a moment - to reflect on what/Who you're looking at. And if you stop and really think about it in that moment?
Let's just say, you'll want to do it again. And for more than just a moment during Mass. Which is the whole point of Eucharistic Adoration.
More on this tomorrow.
