Today I would like to take a second to share with you all something special about Albertus Magnus College. Every year we have a mass in memory of deceased friends and alumni. It is a special ceremony and this year I got to be a part of it. I was the cross barer and I also was able to read a psalm. At first I was really nervous. The cross weighed a lot more than what I had anticipated. It was also difficult to put it back into the stand on the alter. I felt like a train wreck but everyone said I did well. Then, when it came to my psalm reading, I was even more nervous. I did not look up once at all.
Even though my nerves got the best of me, I felt really good to be a part of something. I was in a ceremony that honored our deceased loved ones. It reminded me of all the loved ones I too have lost. It is nice to have something special to honor them.
