Default Blessing of hope in Christian Solidarity..

I was just wondering, if this has yet happened at anyone else's parish? This evening, I witnessed something very beautiful. I can only describe it as a prayer of Christian Solidarity.

We had a group of 12-15 people from a local United Methodist Church attend the Saturday Vigil Mass. They sat together, in a group.. to the right of the altar.

Our Pastor introduced them and they were warmly greeted by all. And although Father did not specify their reason for attending, everyone knew the reason. They were there to say, simply and quietly.. "we're with you".. in this unimaginable time, when all Americans are witnessing an outright attack on our religious freedom.

Praise God!

As Pope John XXIII said... What unites us as believers in Christ is far more important than what seperates us.

That is awesome that the United Methodist people showed up at your Mass as a sign of their solidarity with you. May God bless them abundantly for doing so. I also hope that maybe the homily or the Mass itself planted seeds in their heart which will grow and grow until they finally decide that they want to be Catholic too.

Yes, I thought it was quite extraordinary too. I'm hoping that this idea will spread.. and become another sort of grass roots movement, among people of faith.. in the United States. To send a clear message to the current administration. That our First Amendment Rights can not be violated.

God bless these wonderful people, who realize that the Catholic Church is currently in the "cross hairs".. but that this issue truly effects all of us.
