Marching Mass

Been thinking quite a bit about faith, spirituality… and where you are!
Had a much needed conversation regarding the topic with a pastor’s wife this morning.
I think it was good.
Made me reflect where I am.
Interestingly, today was also the annual procession conducted by the Catholic community in Shillong.
Faith is within…
Religion feels colorful.
Do not understand the little angels, altar boys, motionless priest, and red umbrellas but it itched from within.
They have their reasons, I have mine.

And, I am posting a poem I memorized in fifth grade.
Still remember it and echoes my thoughts today…

I remember, I remember
The fir-trees dark and high;
I used to think their slender tops
Were close against the sky:
It was a childish ignorance,
But now ’tis little joy
To know I’m farther off from Heaven
Than when I was a boy.

-Thomas Hood
