Removing Sandals Is Optional

13 Jul

God said to Moses, “Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” At Mass we do all we can so that no particle of the sacred Body, no drop of the precious Blood and no syllable of the proclaimed Word will fall to the floor without being consumed and taken to heart. With awe and reverence we receive the Body, the Blood and the Word of God. There is a lovely tune, “This is holy ground. We’re standing on holy ground. For the Lord is present, and where he is, is holy.” With that melody of awareness playing in our minds and hearts, we also stand humbly before every person we meet. The Lord is present in that person. Thus, we are standing on holy ground. Removing sandals is optional, but showing reverence is not. Have a reverent day!
