Anyway, when I arrived at the church, I noticed our visiting priest sitting in the Sanctuary dressed in his alb and stole. I thought for a second that he was there awaiting anyone looking for Confession. So I found my pew and knelt in prayer.
A few minutes later, I glanced up and noticed Father was still sitting in silent contemplation. He was taking part in adoration as well!!! That made me so happy! He, too, wanted to bask in the Presence of Jesus. I haven't seen a priest "prep" for Mass like this in such a long, long time. It made me happy. I hope all of them often get a chance to sit with the Lord in contemplation. :)
