Pope Francis will arrive for his first trip on American soil! What difference does this make in our lives? Imagine how the goodness of God is the eternal light in any darkness! Remember how followers did all they could just
to catch a glimpse of Jesus? We have an opportunity to witness to our faith and the conversion won through the victory of Christ. Our nation is pressed by confusion on the protection of life and marriage. How is this time of anticipation a period of engagement?This
week a story was relayed of a period of waiting outside the door of a concert hall to hear a talented opera singer perform. Yet the students were poor and couldn't afford the $50 tickets.
When suddenly the door opened and the supervisor waved
the students to front seating! So we wait in joyful hope for the coming of the Holy Father! Waiting for an opportunity to express our closeness!
For Catholics we ask how is waiting valuable? Senator Warren addressed Congress asking
if people had fallen and hit their head if they were supporting defunding of Planned Pareenthood. Standing for the protection of the vulnerable is awaiting courageous leaders. So we are at the door prepared to enter! Honestly, beyond a short
reply, how will this Sunday prepare us to move beyond our comfort zone and step out in faith? Let's go together. Your story is unfolding!
