My Experience in a Holy Place.
CS Lewis states Jesus is either a liar, a lunatic, or God. I believe with my whole heart and soul the latter and worship Him in what Catholics call adoration. Adoration takes place in a tiny little chapel, with 5 pews. The Blessed Sacrament which we believe is the hidden Jesus, is exposed on the altar. We go into this wee little room and worship Jesus. It is an experience so mystical I can hardly describe it. Every sense is affected. The chapel is still and quiet. The silence is perfect, I can talk and listen to Jesus. But it is the feeling of the outpouring of love from my creator for my insignificant self that is so powerful it is overwhelming. Sometimes I don't want to open my eyes because I can feel His presence so much I am afraid when I open them He will be standing right there and I will be just too overwhelmed with this reality. I can feel the holiness in this room. I love everything about being there. I have gone to this chapel when I first found out I was pregnant, praying for the baby growing inside me. Then I have taken my babies there and nursed them in His presence and gave them to Him. I could feel the rays of His love seeping into us. When there is a stress in my life I go inside my mind and place myself in that chapel, before Him. And hand over the stress to Him. The holiness in this tiny chapel, just like Jesus Himself a gift to the world.
