Visiting Heaven

I just spent a long  time listening to Messiaen's Visions de l'Amen,  a new favorite, and Victoria's Responsories for Tenebrae,  an old favorite and feel like I've been in heaven.  That feeling was helped by Georgia O'Keeffe's Black Cross and the sliver of gold and orange behind it.
On my walk today a friend called from a distant city and said that yesterday at Mass a man came up to her to thank her.  He said that several years ago on her way back from communion she had shared her communion with him and he has been going to communion ever since.  My friend told me that she had noticed that he didn't go to communion, so she shared hers and said, "This is a banquet.  Everybody eats."
