Today’s Thoughts: “Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” (St. Francis of Assisi) These words from St. Francis seem to sit at the center of our readings today.
In our first reading from the First Book of Kings we encounter a moment in the struggles of Elijah the prophet. Once Elijah starts doing what is necessary and possible in his life he finds himself engaged in impossible. In our Gospel from John, Jesus reminds us to do what is necessary and possible because if we do then what seems impossible will become the very substance of our life.
Friends work at what is necessary and possible in your life so that God can lead you to the impossible.
Have a great Sunday everyone and don’t forget to give God a little time today!
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P. "Preacher on the Run"
