OK, I am going to go out on a limb here with this story, but I am wondering!
At Mass last Sunday morning, there was an older woman with a young child sitting at the end of my pew. I had never seen them before. While I was putting down my missal, Bible and journal, the woman asked me where she could buy a Catholic Bible for her grandson. I told her where I had bought mine, and she asked me how much it cost, and I told her: $35.00. Frankly, she didn't look like she could afford $35.00, but at that moment I did not think much about that.
There was about 15 minutes left before Mass was to start, so I decided to go to the restroom. As I was walking there, the thought suddenly came to me: I should give them my Bible. Then in my head, I heard the words, "If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts." I was a little resistant, since I really liked that Bible, but I resolved to do it.
When I returned to the pew, I gave them the Bible. They did not act like you would expect a stranger to act when given such an unexpected gift: it seemed almost as if they already knew I would give it to them, but that did not bother me, because I felt good about doing it.
I planned to speak to them after Mass, to welcome them to our parish or something like that, but when I looked up after the last hymn, they had disappeared--I never saw them leave. +
