While attending daily mass today I was asked to be a reader. I did not expect to read but gladly offered to assist at mass. I was a little nervous when I got to Lectern but for the most part I read well. By the end of reading I fumbled a word,it threw me off and I went back to the beginning of sentence, arghh. I got through it but felt awful when I returned to my pew.
Indeed, it was a humbling experience which I hope never to encounter if ever I have to read again. I was wondering if any of my fellow Catholic brothers and sisters have ever gone through this and if so, how did you get past the feeling a failure?
