Behold, the Lamb of God. . .

An interesting occurrence at Mass this morning. . .

It stormed last night here in Rome.  The sun rose on a cool, gloomy day.  I was a just a little thankful for the lack of sun b/c our chapel is oriented east/west, meaning that the presider's chair faces east.  At the top of the eastern wall is a huge gold tinted window.  When the sun is shining, it shines right through the window and heats up whoever is sitting in that chair!

Just as I elevated the host and chalice at Mass this morning and began the prayer, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. . ." the clouds broke and the sun beamed in through the window, flooding the chapel with golden light.  

I couldn't help but smile!
