God is all around us

 God is all around us

“I have been crucified in Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now lived in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”

As baptized Christians at worship it makes no difference which way we face. I think of St. Patrick’s famous prayer:

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,

Christ in me, Christ beneath me,

Christ above me,

Christ on my right, Christ on my left,

Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit,

Christ when I stand,

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in every eye that sees me,

Christ in every ear in hears me.

I am thinking of the priests in prison in secret finding crumbs of bread and drops of wine sharing with others in the dark, not knowing which (way) they faced in regard to geography.
