On the Feast of the Epiphany, our parish hosted our Bishop, Kevin Rhodes. As I remember, everything went surprisingly well. This week, a parishoner has displayed all the photos she took of the occasion and has offered people copies. As I looked over the pictures, I noticed how beautiful the sanctuary was, with all the Christmas decorations. I also noticed how exquisite the priests' vestments were and how handsomely the parishioners were dressed.
Then it occured to me--why do we not take this much care in the quality of our worship every week? Jesus is far more important and is present in the Blessed Sacrament every day.
