A Catholic who doesn’t know how to Feast.
Forgive me for the self-deprecating nature of this post, but all day today this has been bugging me, as it’s the Feast of the Annunciation, and my school goes hard in celebrating this one.
I have absolutely no idea how to celebrate. The idea of feasting is as foreign to me as differential equations. And it used to just bug me a little until I stopped to consider that if I died right now, presuming I end up in Heaven (please, God), I’d probably try to spend eternity awkwardly standing in the corner.
And I know the difference between our human celebrations and concerts and whatnot are infinitely inferior to the joy that’s to be experienced in Heaven, but just the idea of feasting itself just passes over me. =/
Now fasting? Spiritual warfare? Slogging it out in the fight for loving God? I think I’m pretty good with that. But actually realizing that what I fight for, if continued, will ACTUALLY be attained? I just don’t know what to make of it. In my mind I can follow and understand all the way up to judgment day… but after that my mind draws a blank and hits a bunch of white noise, and not because the reward is so great that it renders me speechless… no, I get that. I can’t in any way truly even begin to wrap my head around even the possibility of actually attaining Who it is I seek.

Hmm, this makes me realize that I don’t have a reaction GIF for all of the common religious orders… Only Franciscan, Carmelite, and Jesuit.
