Another spiritually "on fire" October, 2010, post by Fr. Mark Kirby, titled "My Friend" can be found at this link.
At the moment of the Consecration, he becomes all luminous: beautiful with an indescribable beauty. I feel him trembling with joy next to me. And then he becomes utterly silent; he becomes like a flame of adoration. At this moment he is never alone. All his confrères arrive and sometimes, just sometimes, one feels, but ever so slightly, the hushed movement of wings of light. They arrive, all of them together, to surround the altar and then, they adore, they adore, they adore.

Love God, not religious trappings. You could all (including your priest) start by meeting outside in the park in your street clothes. Leave all your religious trappings in your church building as it is only a building and all that “stuff” is meaningless to God. Some of it may even be an abomination. Meet in his cathedral of creation, and you are more likely to have a spiritual experience than in some church made by man.
