Priest no longer a mystery

Back in my atheist days I would've howled at the gullibility of religious folks for believing that the Great Fairy God Father in the Sky sent a ghost to rescue someone after the accident rather than just prevent the accident in the first place. 

I've grown up since then and have a much better (though still woefully imperfect) understanding of divine providence.

    I would love to hear you speak at length about your understanding of divine providence. Last evening, my family was discussing this incident and one of my daughters remarked, "what a coincidence!" My wife responded with, "It was a miracle!" I did my best to explain that my wife was looking at the story through the eyes of faith.

    1. That would make for a good post, uh? I've written on suffering before, even preached on it once or twice. BXVI has an excellent section on suffering in Spe salvi.

      Your 8/11 post on faith was helpful. Thank you.
