Forgiveness, Communication and Redemption. I am sure at times I have not been forgiving of others. I also know that when God has given me mercy or penance that it has helped me to grow. I suppose that one day everything will be made clear, but if I have hurt anyone recently in my thoughts, words or actions just know that it was not done with malice. Communication is a huge part of any journey so that people can learn to be brothers and sister's in christ. As part of God's family there will be people coming in from all different stages in their lives. Even when we bring good intentions to a person it may not be something they are receptive to, so no worries. Just do what God tells us to do, but also listen to the people we interact with. And if they choose to stop communication with you then it must be that way. In any case God must have had a reason for you to meet someone in person, even if it was just to meet and pray for that person or their family to be healed or blessed. Maybe someone in their family is injured or struggling with a pacemaker: so maybe our role is just to pray for the names and families that become prominent in our prayer life even if we don't understand why God would send us to pray for that person in an adoration chapel in front of the Eucharist every week for many weeks. As human beings we don't have to understand everything, otherwise we would be God and not need to be on earth. We are only called to step out into the water when god calls us to walk on the ocean from the boat and trust that we can dance with jesus, mary, and god the father until he gives more directions for the next day. Every person needs forgiveness, healing, and penance to find a redemption story in their lives in the days and years to come, so we may continue to grow in love with the human family under God.
