Don’t you just hate it when you try to do something to feel all ‘holy’ and God just reduces you to about 1″ tall? Talk about a lesson in humility! We had one of our little ‘chats’ today. ..
I have been talking to a friend about wearing my mantilla in church recently and so decided to take it along to the empty church this afternoon while i prayed the Rosary. I went and sat in the best spot in the church, just at the side of the altar on the steps – as close as you can get to the tabernacle. So the conversation went a little something like this:
“I love you. Look! i’m wearing my mantilla today!”
“I love you too. That’s nice. Why are you wearing that?”
“Dunno really, i just want to be closer to you.”
“Oh. Do you wear your mantilla in your thoughts?”
“Do you wear your mantilla in the conversations you have with people?”
“Do you wear your mantilla in the friendships you have?”
“nooo.” *shrinking smaller by the second*
“OKAY! OKAY! I TAKE YOUR POINT!”
“It’s no good trying to hide under your mantilla Clare! I can seeee youuu!”
“Stop it! Stop it! *ouch*”
Oh Man, I have a long way to go. Your prayers would be much appreciated…!
