Hi - I have not read the book as I am currently reading "The Humility of God" a required read for my Spiritual Direction classes. I am trying to slowly build a spiritual library- but I just found out we have a whole new list of books we are to read as our second year starts in Jan. Last Friday evening we had the guest speaker Robert Elsburg.

He just looked at me for a few minutes and just said I think you may need to discern what this really may mean. He said I may be being called directly to serve the Eucharist. I was shocked and I wasn't sure I believed him. All the years at ICC I had never seen anyone else on the Alter except the same people. I really couldn't get "my head around this.I talked with a dear sister and friend and she wasn't sure either-
so I just kept praying about it. Finally I asked her who ...
