My Journey to God


As I’m about to read from the Sacred Scriptures
At Holy Mass, I sometimes wonder
If this might be a passage that Jesus read
When He stood before the assembly
And unrolled the scroll in the synagogue.

A silent song fills my heart when I reverently begin:
“A reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah …,”
For He is surely present at this holy moment.

Filled with joy for the awesome privilege that is mine,
I humbly offer a prayer of thanksgiving.
