SHQ in the Holy Land: CheesecakeBy Reagan Gonzalez
How do you explain the trinity?
We attended a women’s fellowship group with Fr. Nael. The evening began with hymns around the table. They sang in arabic and Fr. Nael gently tapped the table to keep the group in rhythm. I closed my eyes to let the sweet sound of each woman’s voice center me in a moment of grace. Their songs to God were soothing, like a lulaby.
Fr. Nael then spoke to the group about finding and seeing the trinity in the sacraments.
The women brought homemade tabbouleh and cakes to share afterwards. We enjoyed the best cheesecake of our lives as we heard stories of living in Nazareth.
As we departed for the evening we promised to hold one another in prayer. The care and connection we shared with these women will be something we carry with us for a long while. – Reagan
