Grace is Dark Matter

Most of life consists of small and hidden acts of simple decency, kindness and love–like this one.

“Truly, thou art a God who hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Savior. 16 All of them are put to shame and confounded, the makers of idols go in confusion together.” – Isaiah 45:15-16

That’s because the makers of idols typically imagine God is going manifest himself in something big, splashy and cinematic, when the vast majority of times he’s feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked and visiting the sick. If you’re looking for him don’t look for him in the fire, earthquake, or storm. Listen for the still, small voice.

    I offer my prayers for that little girl’s healing.
    Richard Hammond is one of my favorite television personalities. May this act of mercy be remembered in his favor on that day.

    I know a woman who was Jewish who needed a quiet place to go and relax. Her friend told her about the nearby “Adoration Chapel.” She went simply for some quiet time and in that visit (she knew nothing of the Catholic teaching on the Eucharist) Christ manifested Himself to her in His presence there in the Eucharist – she was converted that night. All because she gave God to opportunity to speak – by simply looking for some silence. :)
