G.K. Chesterton on St. Francis of Assisi:
"He plunged after poverty as men have dug madly for gold."
I got to Mass last night on the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. By myself no less!
It. Was. Awesome.
I am able to get to daily Mass so rarely that its a huge deal now. Add in the fact that there were no kids around and it was heavenly. Well, even more heavenly feeling than usual! I really wish I could get to daily Mass by myself even once every week or two because it really does give so much consolation and comfort. It gives good solitude and prayer time which I've been sorely lacking lately. Its amazing how much you appreciate a Mass with no toddlers!
