Occasionally, Neurons Flicker

So, today is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  It was actually a little odd going to Mass this morning.  Despite the fact that I usually go to morning Mass, I have been pretty sick lately and haven’t made morning Mass in quite some time.  When I got to church, it was a little surreal — like I had been gone for years.  I think I had forgotten the words to the Gloria and the Creed.  That said, it was a beautiful Mass, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.  Thank you, Fr. Lee!  🙂

This was part of the first reading:

“Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky
and hurled them down to the earth.”

And, while I really don’t get most of Revelation, for a moment, neurons fired and I had this thought.  ‘Hmm.  Maybe this refers to the Church Militant, here on earth, since the Church Suffering and the Church Triumphant would be up there in Heaven and Purgatory.’

Interesting thought, eh?  Well, it’s the best I can do this morning.  Enjoy!  🙂
