Growing up Roman Catholic, it was a big adjustment to enter the Eastern tradition in the Melkite church. Many small differences were hard for me to accept at first. However, I have to say that I am SO grateful that our girls have already received their sacraments and can receive Holy Communion. Tonight, as we attended the Vigil Liturgy for Theophany, Maddie told me, "I want Jesus." She was ANXIOUS to receive Him in Holy Communion. My four year old desires to be close to God and I could not ask for more. TRULY.
May God's Spirit dwell in our girls and fill their hearts with His joy and peace. Amen.
