For Lent I am reading the book of homilies of Bishop Ken. This morning was about the game he attended where the Red Wings won the Stanley Cup. He said the excitement was more than just the game. It was the fans being there witnessing together. He compared it to coming together for liturgy. Surely we can pray anywhere - the car, the woods, anywhere. But coming together to witness makes the celebration much more.
That is why the music, the environment even the stained glass windows help to create an experience worth remembering.
Today we decorated for Palm Sunday. Outside and inside. It meant so much to me because of Ken's homily.
