my own Emmaus

Yesterday we went to the vigil Mass at St. Joseph Marello's in Granite Bay.
They are operating out of a gymnasium while they patiently await the building of a formal church.

Our friends, Toni and Rick Collins lead the singing with beautiful guitar music.

We got there early to be able to go to the Sacrament of Confession.

Without a regular confessional, Father Arnold walked with us, one by one, as we told our sins.
This was really wonderful to walk and confess. It reminded me of the Gospel story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus after Jesus was crucified and died.

The penance, which I believe I can reveal, was just to be thankful for this Sacrament. And believe, I am!!!

Jesus, I trust in you.
