happenings. God making music with our lives. attracting our attention. we’re not meant to linger on them. but grace notes make the music richer. they let us know Somebody is there.
~the excerpt above is from chosen. it’s where i’ve got my nose every free chance i can get. sending chills up and down my spine. bringing tears to my eyes. making my heart sing that I. AM. A. CATHOLIC. making me curious about the faith. the apostles. the REAL PRESENCE of Jesus in the EUCHARIST.
the thesis of the book is simply this: Christ, not man converts, and while His shepherds may flee, He stays, drawing until the end of time the lost and weary to life upon the unbreakable rock of HIS Church.
i am often lost and weary myself.
conversion is a lifelong process.
and frankly it feels so good to be a part of something as big. ancient. solid. and outside of the constraints of time. as the Church.
happy weekending friends! hope you are finding lots of little grace notes in your own lives.
i’ve missed this place. but absence makes the heart grow fonder, does it not?
