Our pastor entertained a question-and-answer-stump-the-pastor format during his homily this past Sunday. One comment he made hit me hard. He said that prayer is not our changing God; but, rather, God changing us. So, we petition. We should repeat our petitions. It reminds us that we need to constantly turn, and return, to God to focus on what is important. I hope to put this blog on my right sidebar. The Acton Institute is a space filled with prayerful, common-sense people. I want to do more to make this country the country it ought to be. The children and I are off to Noon Mass. I am confident that grace will change this country, one heart at a time.
