His Mother was distraught because he appeared, with the other Sunday Schoolers, at the Altar Rail to receive Communion. He was barefoot! After the service she mentioned to the Priest that she would make sure that didn’t happen again. Her response was: “When Moses stood on the mountain God told him to remove his shoes, for he was upon Holy ground. Being barefoot at the altar may be more appropriate than wearing shoes.”
Bob the Ex-patriot Brewer and Bed & Breakfast Proprietor in Honduras said: “Everyday is a holiday and every meal is a feast.”
Aunt Janie says: “This is the day the Lord has made, hot diggity what are we going to do with it?”
Chris’ bumper sticker says: “Don’t postpone joy.”
Richard Rohr says: “It’s Heaven all the way to Heaven.”
They are all saying the same thing and I finally heard it. Every day is a Holy Day. Every meal is a feast. Heaven is here and now. We are always standing on Holy ground. “Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
That’s, really, the only sensible response.
