An Afternoon in Heaven
The hymns of praise we have been reading in our community scripture study of the book of Revelation inspired us to anticipate the worship of heaven with a Sunday afternoon “Praise and Worship Hour.” Mother John Mary dusted off her guitar skills and coached postulant Theresa (a classically trained guitarist) in strumming, while some of the other sisters joined in singing a variety of songs, including some based on this beautiful text of Revelation.
A snapshot of our conversation between singing and strumming:
Sister 1: What should we play next?
Sister 2: Maybe not Holy, Holy, Holy…we sing that all the time.
Sister 1: I think that’s what we’ll be singing for all eternity!
