I'm sure many of us have a peaceful place, for me I go to church to find peace and comfort. The only two places where I feel safe, at ease and comfortable are my house and my local church. During the rough times in my life, I just pray and meditate, knowing that my prayers will be answered. But even when I'm happy, or in just about any mood, I try my best to go to church as often as I can.
Surrounding myself with peaceful thoughts, positive vibes and people who care and love me are all very important to me. I feel incredibly blessed and humbled that I have an incredible amount of people, family, friends and mentors that I can trust. It is a great feeling and also assuring too!
Often when I am in church alone, I go inside and just sit down in a pew and just pray for minutes and sometimes hours at a time, if time allows me. There is just something that makes a place of worship so haramonious, vibrant and elaborate. The atmosphere is just so peaceful and relaxing.
I hope one day I get the opportunity to go to St. Patrick's Cathederal, in New York City. It is one of the largest cathederals in the nation and the world. I enjoy going to mass every Sunday and gathering with the church community! I am blessed to be a catholic! I feel amazing, happy and healthy!
