Let us take this day that we often celebrate wearing masks to become for a short time someone else and recognize that we need no masks to see the beauty in one another. Let us look at those we encounter and see the incredible beauty in their eyes. Help us to be more aware of the need for those around us to feel your love. May we celebrate the things that make each of us unique and be grateful for those things in ourselves. Let us see that our gifts are an important part of what makes our community special and be ready to share them with those we love. May your grace fill us this and every day, Loving God. Amen.
