Lift up your heart!

September 14, 2010 § 2 Comments

Lifting up one’s heart is a priestly act.  It is prayer.  Today is the Feast of the Lifting up of the Cross.

Whether your heart is full of suffering or full of joy.

Whether you are aware of it or not.

Whenever you lift up your heart and soul, you too are participating in an inner Liturgy prayed by the Holy Spirit in the depths of each heart.

    Listening to Susan Boyle sing made me cry a good cry. What made me cry was the truth; the truth of the ugliness of cynicism and judgmentalism, a constant enemy of hopes and dreams. What made me cry also was that there are so many Susan Boyle’s who fall through the cracks, disappear into the anonymous stream of consciousness because they are too beaten down and constantly taught to give up.

    They give up, not due to fear. They give up because the wind is always sucked out of them. They give up and live in the shadows of the world, preferring it there than to the contests and all the games.

    Few rise such as Susan Boyle. What a beautiful thing when it does occur. It also brings tears of joy.
