The priest gave me a new experience today. I've felt emotional at Mass today, but I've never cried before today. I didn't full on cry, but I had to wipe tears away cuz his Homily, while it was supposed to be happy, it was on the wrong topic for me today.

Our priest told us about the first funeral Mass he ever got today...5 week old...pregnant hormonal lady...tears...

oh, dear. I'm sure that would make me cry, too.

I have cried at Mass, but only occasionally. Have you ever heard of the gift of tears? It's a charismatic thing, which I'm not really into the whole charismatic movement, but I have experienced this before. The last time was during a healing Mass. It kinda freaked me out!

Yes, usually at Communion. The Eucharist is one of the primary reasons I stayed Catholic after almost walking away, so if I get emotional at Mass...it usually has something to do with Communion.

My daughter was very sick as an infant and we had her on the prayer list for months. When they mentioned her name during the prayers for the sick I'd get pretty emotional. I still do just thinking about it actually.

Yes, every time they play on Eagles Wings. They played that song at my great grandmother's funeral.

Cryers used to bother me. I know it sounds awful, but when people were overly emotional, I would be annoyed. I definitely got what I deserved. I cry all of the time. I have to hold back tears most Sundays at Mass. This past week has been particularly hard for me. My favorite priest is leaving, and his going away festivities were this weekend. He is being sent to Virginia. He presided over my wedding ceremony. He baptized my two living children, and did the funeral for my son who passed away. The day they made the announcement, I had to leave Mass because I couldn't stop sobbing.

When I moved to CO after law school I was completely alone. I was confident it was God's Will for me to be in CO but it was hard. I didn't know anybody. I was having a horrible time finding a legal job. Waiting for my bar results. I felt so alone. I talked with my family and friends on the phone a lot but it is not the same - looking back I can't really belief I actually moved here with no family, no friends, no connections. Anyway, I went to daily Mass during those earlier months and I cried every single day. A group of elderly ladies invited me to stay and pray the rosary after Mass with them and so I started doing that too - I cried all through mass and then all through the rosary! I think they were really worried about me but oddly enough we never actually talked.
