Every Sunday afternoon, we at Chavagnes have Exposition and Benediction. It is, of course, obligatory. The reason for this is that we human beings will usually do anything to get out of doing what we should do, and what we know is good for us.
It is a fine thing to have to sit in silence for a while in the presence of the Lord and have to do... nothing.
Life is too full of stuff. Too many words, too many distractions. Here all we have is the flickering of the candles and Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Stop for a while and remember the Lord your God.
