As much as I enjoy the kind of interaction with others that I have always considered normative, with visual and auditory cues, facial expressions, banter, and even physical touch, this imposed solitude we are all experiencing now has given me opportunity to better appreciate that distinct blessing I may have been taking for granted.
The blind man would never have known what he was missing, had Jesus not healed him.
When I finally awoke to life and reality sometime in my 30s (and I continue to awake to it each day), I still cannot claim to have brought it about all by myself. And sometimes I wonder about that loss of ignorance and naïveté. Life was definitely easier when I didn’t know. But I know that I am wiser because of it. Bruised and battered, but wiser. Even if it were an option, I would never imagine going back.
This mass was offered for the repose of +Maria Liu.

And it’s good to get feedback in any way, probably better now than when we couldn’t be in the same room. Goes to show we can be more intentional about letting others know how much we appreciate them and how we are better off that they are in our lives.
