Evening arrived and, at 10:00 p.m., all was ready. We began the Vigil after the example of the Apostles and disciples, with Mary, the Mother of Jesus. We gathered at the grotto and began our procession. We came together to persevere in prayer, awaiting the Holy Spirit.
Like them, we listened to God’s Word and reflected on the many great deeds in times past that God did for His people and would now do for us as we received the Holy Spirit’s call and power in our lives.
The next morning, we had Mass with Fr. Lautere. And some stayed for the morning Mass, too!
