Dissapointed. That’s how I’m feeling. We didn’t get to Mass this morning because my daughter was feeling ill and I didn’t want to leave her on her own for the couple of hours I would be away from the house, if I went. As the day went on she was feeling a bit better and so my son and I prepared to go to Palm Sunday Mass at a parish that has evening Mass. I double checked online that there was an evening Mass, I even tried phoning, but there was no answer. So we parked up outside the Church only to discover that the gates were locked. A few minutes later a man came and looked in my car window and asked if there was a Mass. ….then another man came and offered to go to the presbytery to find out if there was a Mass. No one answered at the presbytery. There were only 5 of us in the end, so obviously the rest of the regular congregation members were aware that there was no evening Mass this week. I’m sad to say that I was unable to begin Holy Week as I had hoped. Sickness really wears my family down. I couldn’t attend the Ash Wednesday Mass due to the sickness of my children. I know my place is with the children when they are ill, and I know that I can make an act of spiritual communion, but I need Jesus! D’you ever just feel like that? I do. Everyday. I really need His sustainance right now and I could cry not to have been able to receive communion today.
