We made our yearly pilgrimage to White Sands National Monument this past Sunday. We were blessed with a beautiful, warm evening and a nice crowd. Students took advantage of this small respite from studies to be kids again, playing in the sand and enjoying each others company. After a simple meal, Fr. Emmanuel presided over Mass. As is the typical experience, celebrating Mass in the dunes was awe-inspiring.
As I reflected on the evening’s events on the ride home, the words of the psalmist echoed in my spirit:
O LORD, our Lord,
how awesome is your name through all the earth!
I will sing of your majesty above the heavens
with the mouths of babes and infants.
When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and stars that you set in place--
What is man that you are mindful of him,
and a son of man that you care for him?
The entire evening was grace filled and if you were unable to join us this time, I encourage you to join us next year!
