Filled With Grace

I so needed Mass today.  As I walked through the doors of the church a great joy filled me.  It was like finally returning home after a long absence and being with someone you love.  Being in the presence of God washed away all the stress of the past week and a half.  It was a wonderful grace to have those burdens lifted from shoulders even if only for a short while.  I feel more focused and able to get back to doing God's work and helping lost souls find their home with Him.

O God, of Whose mercies there is no number, 
and of Whose goodness the treasure is infinite; 
we render thanks to Your most gracious majesty 
for the gifts You have bestowed upon us, 
evermore beseeching Your clemency, 
that as You grant the petitions of them that ask You, 
You will never forsake them, 
but will prepare for the reward to come. 
Through Christ our Lord.
