Usually I am never alone because my mother, youngest daughter and three grandchildren come with me but, I still feel lonely because I see a lot of couples, young and old attending Mass. Sometimes, depending of how my day has gone I cry alone. I know God is with me and also I know He has He's plans for me.

The Sign of Peace can be lonely; there's always that little pause where couples turn to kiss one another and families hug it out while you're left alone waiting for lukewarm handshakes from strangers. I've learned to use that time to say a quiet "peace" for family and friends who aren't with me or to thank God for the love of faith-filled couples and families in the parish.

As a widow; I long to have a husband to attend Mass with. I sometimes feel lonely when I see a married couple sitting close together and he has his arm around her shoulders or they hold hands during Mass. Mary
