Words of a Shepherd

Our Bishop J. Peter Sartain's columns in The Catholic Explorer are always wonderful, and I found this week's particularly thought provoking. Worth a read!

Wherever I find myself—at church, work, shopping or the airport—there is something which in this place, at this time, and with these people, God wishes to teach me. If there is a way to apply the word “instantaneous” to the spiritual life, it is that the present, the here-and-now, is bursting with God’s presence. It is a hazard to assume that God is somewhere else but not here, or that he should respond to my prayer as quickly as I expect my e-mails to be answered.

Read the whole thing here.
