Yesterday morning, I went to the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes along Forsyth, hoping to hear Fr. Carl Scheble’s homily. Fr. Carl was not celebrating, but Fr. Sean Martin of Saint Louis University did. I thoroughly enjoyed his homily because two comments stuck out. His first comment was: we are not perfect. God knows this. But he chooses to love us anyways. The second comment was: if you ask God for “things,” the answer is always no. But if you ask God for his presence, the answer is always “Yes.”
What have you asked for lately? What has God granted you when he does not give you what you want?
