Yesterday at Mass, the choir were given pins by Father Ray.
This is my second– the first said “Minister of Care,” when I was bringing Holy Communion to a family. Now I’m serving our parish in the choir instead.
When I saw Father holding them, I went over to claim mine. He pulled his hands back.
A few minutes later, he blessed them all with Holy Water.
They were all the more special for that.
I had to take a picture– you can see the Holy Water droplets on the plastic case holding it inside.
Reminds me of fourth grade, when my class were given a Bible. They were blessed with Holy Water. I still have mine.
Though I admit I don’t read it often.
This little gesture from Father Ray to our choir made me feel so included, part of something special.
I had someone take a picture of me wearing mine on my shirt. It’s gleaming there– my smile is huge!
I love our white and red choir robes! He asked us to wear our pins with pride each Sunday.
I’m delighted to oblige.
