First Friday: Missed Adoration and Benediction

By the time I arrived, the church was empty and dark. Of course, Jesus is present in the Tabernacle. But I found my prayers a bit distracted by the silence. It seems, I am out of practice at relishing the absence of sound. I wonder why. I could even hear the clock that hangs over the door to the vestibule ticking, it was so quiet.

Increase your zeal. Read the signs of the times. Look for him who is outside time, the eternal one, the unseen, who became visible for us; he cannot be touched and cannot suffer, yet he became subject to suffering and endured so much for our sake. – St. Ignatius of Antioch to Polycarp (1, 1-4, 3: Funk 1, 247-249).
