God, thanks for not sharing the details...

By Peter Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Feb 02, 2012

After a week full of various personal trials, I've realized that the less you try to figure out (or worry about figuring out) the specific details of God’s plan, the easier it is to recognize that plan while it is happening. Whew... good thing I’ll never have to learn that lesson again! (Right?)

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Be assured of prayers. "All in good time" as the saying goes. I was struck by this verse from Galatians, another from the Proper prayers of the feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch, one of my favorite saints: "But as for me, God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world." May we, like this remarkable bishop, "become the pure bread of Christ" being "ground by the teeth" of our trials and tribulations.
