Another Way to Look at Dressing for Mass

Keith-Bloomfield-CC

Jennifer Fulwiler - published on 06/24/15

That morning at Mass, when the opening processional started, I happened to catch sight of that lady again. She was sitting directly across from me, and I noticed that when everyone else stood, she remained kneeling for a moment longer, her eyes clenched shut in prayer, her lips moving slightly as she said a few last things to the Lord. As the choir began to sing, I said a prayer of thanksgiving for her witness, and for the reminder that you don’t have to wait until everything in your life is perfect to engage in outward displays of reverence.
