Acts 13:13-25; Psalm 89; John 13:16-20

Being catholic

“Ask anything of the Father in my name …” What a promise. We often turn to God. Frequently it's part of daily life. "Thanks, God, for the parking space”. “O Lord, we do need rain”. A friend pointed out that Catholicism is part of our culture, not just our religion. When we're Catholics of several generations, we're unaware of how strange we seem to others. We go to church when we're on holiday. We view death matter-of-factly. We don't sleep around. Sure, we still have lots of faults. But we live, trusting we are going to a better place.
