... in feeling God's embrace
As I entered the church there was no Mass on, so I simply sat down in one of the pews at the back.
As I gazed up at the roof in silent prayer, trying to find words to talk to God, I was grateful for a moment's peace. But more than that, I felt as though a person much bigger and stronger anyone I had ever known, but also a gentle person, and extremely kind person had reached out to give me a hug and I knew that this is what God's embrace must feel like. I felt completely safe and loved.
