This little light of mine — how to let it shine

  1. Yesterday I was waiting for our young RCIA folks to show up for the scrutinies. They are habitually nearly late so I waited by the side doors at the back of church, watching for them. I figured I might as well do something so I began opening up the doors and welcoming people coming in and I got a lot of surprised looks followed by big smiles. You’re right. I can change things.

  2. Just like Margaret, I decided to join Pete at the church entrance. Pete has always been the first person I see when I get to church. Pete will tell you that God has placed it on his heart to make sure he greets everyone who comes to church. So, I joined in. What an experience! I’m also a catechist for our Faith Formation programs and I was amazed at how many of my students I saw and, for the first time, met their siblings.

    I found myself smiling more and, I am quite certain, that my smile had to be contagious; everyone was smiling! My favorite line when I am asked how I am doing? Simple, “I’m doing good, but I’ll get better!” It is good for a quick chuckle and, when someone asks how that is possible, I tell them, “There is no point in putting a cap on just how good we can feel.”

  3. It makes a difference when people hear a hello or see a smile and a Good Morning. When I wait for my RCIA folks to show up for our Mass that week-end, I wait in the Gathering Space and it’s amazing how many people smile back and say hello or Good Morning back to me. I feel not only like I made their day, but they brought smiles to my day as well.
