Dear Sacred Heart Family,
Henry Ford (1863-1947) was the famous American motor manufacturer who pioneered large-scale motor production. He was the founder of the Ford Motor Company. A man, who went to interview Mr. Ford when he was very old, was surprised to find him calm and serene. The interviewer asked him, “Sir, are you not worried in your life? You have to face so many problems every day and deal with so many workers. Don’t you feel the strain on yourself?” Henry Ford replied, “No! I am not worried. I believe that God is managing the affairs and He doesn’t need my advice. With God in charge, I believe that everything will work for the best in the end.” (John Rose in John’s Sunday Stories)
“All things work for good for those who love God,” assures St. Paul in today’s second reading. St. Paul teaches that wisdom to perceive God’s grace and use it, is essential for those who want to follow Him and to do His will, thus remaining in His Kingdom. He assures the Christian community that “all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” We need to practice patience. First of all, we need to be patient with ourselves. We may not get everything done perfectly today or this week. Then we must be patient with the others. Let’s practice patience, remembering that, in the end, it is God who controls.
Our Hope in Christ,
Fr. James Kaniparampil CMI
