Some of us may not like transitions.  Some of us may be afraid.  But as I see it, we have two choices.  We can either stay scared and resist changes for as long as we can.  Or we can embrace transitions and say “Bring it on.  Let me ride the wave.”  We can see change as ways of growing wiser and stronger.  We can see transition as lessons that teach us to be more mature and to live more deeply, in order that we may be the best persons that we can possibly be.  We can embrace change and transitions and say – “This is my future.  And I welcome it and embrace it with all the strength and courage I can muster.”

If we don’t know when we will be used by God as witnesses, then we have to live our lives the best we can, so that at any instant, God can use us.  We’re never going to be worthy – it is GOD who makes us worthy.  I don’t mean sitting at the edge of our seats 24/7, or putting on an act and trying to be holier-than-thou.  No, what I mean is something very basic, something very simple.  Whatever we do, let’s do it well … whatever we do, let’s do it well.  If we work at home, or work away from home, let’s work with ethics.  If we meet with people and interact with people, let’s be as genuine and sincere as we can be.  Whatever we do, whoever we are, let’s strive to be the best that we can be.  Let’s strive to be as honest, as genuine, as sincere, as human as we can be.  Just by doing that, we become witnesses of God, witnesses that Jesus is alive and well and is among us.

[Father “Joe” was a visiting priest at our parish for several years.  He has a ready smile and an open heart.  He also has one consistent message in each of his sermons:  God (Jesus) loves us all – each and every one of us.  Simple, yet profound.    —    kmab]
