  •  He came to a friend's church in Morristown once. (6+ / 0-)

    She had hoped to receive eucharistic bread from him, but the line was very long and she felt sorry for her own priest who just wasn't as big a draw that day, so she elected to receive from the guy she knew instead.

    She said as much as she enjoyed hearing his sermon, meeting him afterwards in the parish hall was an electrifying experience, particularly shaking his hand and looking into his eyes.   She said it would have been easy to think there were no other hands to shake and he had all the time in the world.

    I think the applicable word is "presence": he was truly present with her at that moment, and everyone else felt the same way.

    May we be truly present with every person we meet today.
