I am not an overly emotional person. In fact, far from it. This past week-end at Easter Mass I was unexpectedly and suddenly overcome by such a feeling of joy and happiness that it took all I could do from not crying. It was that strong. It was actually somewhat embarrassing as I was totally caught off guard. The opening song is where it hit me first as the words just seemed to fill my heart with joy. I was totally caught off guard. I collected myself but during the gospel reading I felt this feeling overwhelm me again. I was so happy I couldn’t help but shed some tears. I don’t know what to make of all this as I’ve never ever had this happen during Mass ever before. It was quite surprising as again I’m not an emotional person at all.
Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I’m still trying to make sense of it but the best I can describe it was just a feeling of pure joy and happiness?
