Reflection during Diocese of Pittsburgh Deacon and Spouse Retreat September 12, 2014
Tonight I went alone to the chapel to pray before Night Prayer was scheduled to begin. As I entered it was very dark, only two faint lights in the rear of the chapel and the sanctuary candle in front near the tabernacle were the only lights available. I had come from the evening social in the bright dining room to the chapel where I found myself stumbling to find a pew in the dark. But I did settle in place for what I thought would be thirty minutes or so of me feeling uncomfortable and alone in the dark.
However, as I began to pray I noticed that I was not alone, there were other human forms around me!
