Homily of the Day

Tuesday in the Octave of Easter

How many times have we failed to recognize the presence of the Lord in our lives? More often than not, when things do not go our way, our immediate reaction is to think that God has abandoned us. We let our emotions and anxiety take over. We forget to pray. We even blame God for what seems to be a setback. We lose faith. Then, as our senses return and we are able to think better, we discover that it was actually a blessing in disguise. We had to face the trial to enable us to become better people and to achieve a better ending. Only then did we realize that “it was the Lord!”
