Our Lord and His Holy Apostles at the Last Supper

A blog dedicated to Christ Jesus our Lord and His True Presence in the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist

Now therefore saith the Lord: Be converted to me with all your heart, in fasting, and in weeping, and in mourning. And rend your hearts, and not your garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful

Joel 2:12-13

The Lord gave, the Lord hath taken away

On Friday I fell into sin. Immediately after, I lost my wallet. I accepted this as just punishment for what I had done (I'm usually not that spiritually mature). On Sunday, I did something kind for someone. Immediately after, I found my wallet.

No one in this world knew about both actions and wallet, but perhaps Someone elsewhere thought I needed stronger guidance than usual. I believe that all the events of our lives can contribute to our sanctification. Usually the connection is subtler than this, though.

As it hath pleased the Lord, so is it done: blessed be the name of the Lord, all-wise, all-loving, all-merciful, all-just, all-holy.
