Today, we had a local Latin Rite pastor visit our Maronite parish. Father asked him to assist at the Divine Liturgy. The Maronite vestments are simple since it is of monastic origin. It's beauty resides in the liturgy. I watched the visiting priest's face throughout the celebration. His eyes lit up with amazement and awe, he bowed in reverence at the appropriate times. Afterwards, I had an opportunity to ask his thoughts. His face lit up with joy, his mouth extended into a large smile. "Simply beautiful!", he replied.
This is the 3rd Latin Rite priest to visit our parish in as many weeks. Each seems amazed at the communion line that wends its way up where the priest administers communion by intinction - no extraordinary ministers of holy communion, no communion in the hand - and all approach with great reverence, especially the children who are blessed by the priest touching the top of their heads with the chalice.
A beautiful liturgy moves hearts and draws us closer to our Lord.

(Without justice, what else is the State but a great band of robbers? - St. Augustine)
We praise Thee o Lord and we adore Thee.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.
