Here I am Lord, it is I Lord
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.
If I felt out of place even for a moment at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church this morning, the first notes disavowed me of that feeling. It was the 10:30 English mass and it began with one of my favorite hymns. Extraordinary.
It is a humble setting, a bit in disrepair, but every pew full. Father Miguel Campos spoke of gratitude and prayer, heavily accented through a poor microphone, his message came through loud and clear. After the service, Fr. Campos went directly into the next of a total of 6 Sunday services he would officiate this day. He kindly directed me to Linda Ortez and Stella, both liturgists who shared their concerns and hopes for their community.
In the spirit of better acoustics, I will be trying a new mic tomorrow and hope to improve in future posts.
Wishing you all a peaceful debate night.
