It Is What It Is … NOT

Friday of Week 25 in Ordinary Time


You might not be able to prevent the rain. But you can carry an umbrella. “It is what it is” is a cop out. If our efforts are pointless, there would be no sense in feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, sheltering the homeless, visiting the sick and those in prison. Clearly God will accomplish his will without us, despite us. But God still wants us to take part in his plan. We are not helpless. There are a lot of things that do not have to be as we find them.

This mass was offered for the repose of +Rosemary Shimer.
