Yesterday at work, I went to lunch and, to my surprise, there was a priest standing in the crowded hallway, long, flowing white habit and all, applying ashes to anyone interested passing by. It caught me off guard. In the split second that I passed by, I was enamored. It was striking — people in business suits, coming out of the┬ároom, unashamedly, with the mark — the mark of the cross applied to their foreheads, and continuing with their day. I was touched to tears at the sight. It reminded me of God becoming flesh, so the priest, a representative of God, came into our workplace. Emmanuel. It was a meeting of inner world and outer world. #sacredmeetsmarketplace
