Last Sunday after a great brunch at Agricola Community Eatery in Princeton, we were driving down Nassau Street on our way back home when we passed St. Paul’s Roman Catholic Church. We decided to stop in for a few minutes of quiet prayer and reflection. Princeton has had a vibrant Catholic community since the late 1700s.
I love visiting Catholic Churches in what ever town we happen to be visiting. There is something that draws me to spending time in the house of God. The statuary, the stained glass windows, the church itself are all beautiful and help to put you into a prayerful mindset; but what really draws me in is that while I am sitting or kneeling in a pew I know that Jesus Christ is present in the Most Blessed Sacrament reserved in the tabernacle. And to me, that is the most important thing. Nothing else can compare to the experience of being in the company of Jesus.
Pax et bonum,
