When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. Lk 2:15-16It's almost Christmas. The parish office is pretty busy. I am running back & forth between the church and the office. Each time I do, I feel a nudge to go to the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.
So each time I go there, I pay attention to that nudge and I go to make a short visit, to say hello to Jesus.
And all I can do, it seems, is stand there in front of the tabernacle, with tears rolling down my face. I really don't know why. I just feel filled up with love for Jesus. And an awareness of His presence.
It's almost Christmas. Perhaps my waiting is over. Perhaps I have found Bethlehem.
