It was so great yesterday to see the number of people who willingly came out and embraced the heavenly rain we had in Kansas City last night. As a volunteer, I was so happy to see so many having a good time. What really makes it even better from my perspective is that I realized that part of Sunday morning's agenda for the Irish festival includes Mass at 9:30. How great is it that such a large public event downtown, includes Mass?
As much as this world seems to be turning its back on God, it is incredible to see such a great opportunity to share our faith. I can only hope that celebrations such as these can provide a powerful witness to those who may be choosing to reject or ignore the Will of God.
