Emotion commotion

Attending Mass this morning was a little difficult, emotionally. I'm not sure if it was because of the holiday season, or the fact that this was my first school/weekday Mass of the school year? Perhaps, it was the topic. It was the feast day of St. Andrew. The reading spoke of Christ asking Andrew to follow him. Andrew did so, without question.

My thoughts were "am I ready"? Is what I'm going through a test, or a calling? I pray that if it is the former, I am capable and if it is the latter, like Andrew, I am ready.

If the last 9 1/2 months were turmoil, the next month has the potential of being worse. We are praying that the PSA test results from 12-15 will be encouraging, while at the same time, we are trying to prepare ourselves if it is not. We're praying for a Merry Christmas at the Emerson house…….

I also pray for your Christmas to be merry and blessed...

Hail Mary,
Full of grace.
The Lord is with thee,
Blessed art thou amongst women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary mother of God,
Pray for us sinners, now
And at the hour of our death.
