Novena Day 4 or 5


The text for the Novena will be the same every day, on the feast day, I will post the extra prayers to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on the back of the book. I don't think it's necessary to have the same prayer over and over again...

On Friday, I went to Eucharistic Adoration. I try to visit Jesus at least once a week for 30 minutes, and it's always followed with confession, Rosary, and Mass. So, I've become quite used to being around Jesus for long periods of time.

This Friday, the Adoration was paired with a concert by Michael John Poirier. He likes my harmony, and he is a man with a good heart, so I always oblige. Even so, whenever I do adoration with him, I'm not prone to over emotion. This Friday was different, and I found myself crying.

I wasn't crying over sadness, or any bad thing that had happened to me. I think I cried because I was finally letting go of all the secret things that I bore in my heart. Even the things that weren't so secret, the joys, the sufferings, everything I had, I was finally able to let it go. I left my friends, my family, my physical, spiritual and mental suffering up there as an offering to Jesus, and it was so relaxing. I'm not na´ve enough to think that the feeling will last forever, but I am thankful for the small gift of peace that has been granted to me for this short while.

Thank you Jesus.
