On coincidences, God’s punishments as gifts and loving the thing you’re supposed to hate

This morning while waking up at an ungodly time after making the trip to see my sister in Las Vegas, I finally opened up my electronic devices only to find one million messages. Out of the million or so messages that were awaiting me, I saw the flash to accept a new comment on my last post. Before opening the comment, I held my breath wondering if it was going to be someone telling me to suck it up or recruiting me to be an atheist. To my surprise, I opened up the comment to find a reader who posted a video for me to watch, and I did. 

All I can say is that I may have stopped breathing for a moment. The very words I had been longing to hear were spoken in a short video clip that said everything. My convoluted search for answers eclipsed into a seven or so minute video explaining not the depths of pain, but God’s great providence. And this is why we must be open to wisdom in its many forms- including the words of Stephen Colbert.

I am going to keep this post short so that you can enjoy the video. I hope it touches you as it did me,

Pax Christi-
