Peace at the Healing Mass - Carla Kulhanek

My health has been failing me for a few years now, and as my body declines and I become more dependent on the help of others I am realizing how blessed I truly am.  My mind has been whirling with worries, especially about what decisions I need to make about my future.  My disease has no cure and my lack of options weighs heavily on me. 

 

A good friend told me about the healing service awhile ago, but in the midst of just trying to get through the day I had forgotten about it.  She called again to see if I could make it and offered to pick me up, since I can no longer drive safely.  I haven't been able to get to church as regularly as I used to and had a very strong feeling that I needed to attend.  I wasn't sure what to expect but had been a member of Immaculate Conception years ago.  Entering the church felt like a homecoming.  The service was very meaningful and when it was my turn to be prayed upon I just felt an overwhelming sense of peace.  All my worries seemed to be replaced with a huge flow of love, I am still feeling the peaceful presence that surrounded me.  While my problems haven't disappeared, I now feel I have the strength to face them, armed with the peace and love that enveloped me that night.
