Saturday, June 21, 2014 – Saint Lawrence Parish – Shelton, CT

I got up early to go to St. Lawrence, again in Shelton. This time on my way home from the lake.

It was like a sign from God who has been hearing my laments and frustration about not being able to take off and walk the Trail starting this summer!
I walked into a pretty church shaped like a Big T. There was a pretty altar set up and located at the center of the “top line” of the T. However, the entire top line of the T wall was natural stones. So earthy, so grounding, a solid foundation. It was peaceful just to look at; so connected to nature in such a beautiful and understated way. I sat there; quiet and still; thinking of my journey to come on the Appalachian Trail. I made a promise to myself in that stillness of the Mass going on around me as I took in every single rock on that beautiful stone wall.

I will hike the Appalachian Trail someday… one way or another!
