At Eucharist we acclaim and aspire to “live to the praises of God’s Glory.” And I wonder, what does this mean – will I really aim for this during my day today? I love the timeless mystery present in the Eucharist. I love the hope that my voice and our small number of voices gathered together this morning will somehow connect to heaven, to guardian angels and saints, to the Apostles, to those on the other side of the world that are also seeking God. Yet, I feel small and weak, knowing that when I leave church I will wrestle inside with the gap between the vision of Eucharist and how my stirring, conflicting emotions feel throughout the day. A friend likes to remind me that “praise is the key that unlocks countless blessings.” Perhaps putting praise first will help me to live in the vision of God’s glory.
