Mass Thoughts


I went to Saturday Evening Mass this week instead of Sunday because of a play my wife is having us attend today.  In the Roman Catholic Church, masses that occur after 4pm on Saturday through 8pm on Sunday are all scheduled as the same type of normal Sunday Mass. 

In one of the readings this week, I felt most affected by this part of the reading:

The LORD said to me: You are my servant,
Israel, through whom I show my glory.


As it seems for the last few weeks, what strikes me most deeply is the idea that I really am being reminded that my role here in life is to be a servant to others.  It is only by being a servant that I can do good for others and for the world.  

It is hard to keep that focus, but with these reminders for the last several weeks of mass.... perhaps it will finally stick in my addled brain and I will find the energy to work harder for good.
