Get into the ring! How this works...

This is easy! Each week on Thursday I post my homily main focus for preaching this coming Sunday. What I am hoping for is a reaction from people in the pews. Does my "focus" connect with your daily life, faith, and experience? Or not? Either affirm the direction I am going in (by giving me an example from your life) or challenge me, ask for clarification! Questions are the best! Reaction rather than reflection is what I'm looking for here. Don't be afraid, get in the ring. Ole!

Recently a friend of mine experienced some frustration at work. It was not a big problem – but nonetheless, I felt badly about it because I was one of the contributing parties to her difficulty. When I saw her trying to absorb the problem, to “take it in” so as to attempt to process how she would resolve it, I felt such compassion for her. Again, this was a small thing – but partly because of seeing her struggle – and partly because of the responsibility I felt at being a part of the struggle, I was filled with the want to do what I could to relieve her of it.

It’s certainly not a dramatic example of the Matador’s encouragement to sense the mystery of God – but I think it is one of those “everyday” opportunities we have. In my movement from adding to the frustration of the situation to having a desire to help bring solution and resolve, I could sense a spirit of peace. How much different it is when we each bring whatever comfort, care, and concern for one another to any dynamic. I like the Matador’s comment so much, and experienced that as I changed my heart – that where the mystery of God is made visible, there joy is.
