Morning Mass Message
Morning Mass today included a homily that was what I needed.
Father preached about parents watching their children leave the Church, and even religion for that matter. He noted that all too often parents beat themselves up over this.
He pointed out that what we need to focus on is not what others do - we can't ultimately control them - but on how we are living our faith. God cares that we really tried, not whether or not we succeeded. We will be judged by our actions, not by others'. Plus, the seeds we planted in out children may blossom in the future - we just can't see that now.
I needed a positive message like that! Thank you, Lord.
Pax et bonum
