Every event can be seen simply as a result of other events, a purely human thing; but it can be seen too as our Lord saw it: as God's will for us. And if we see it, and love it, like that, then it becomes something great and deep, something in which God's love and wisdom are active because we have made it an act of love, have made it part of the love-story.

Notes to those praying for Terri Schiavo:
Here's a link to the Novena for Michael Schiavo.
Personally, I have been moved to pray St. Faustina's Prayer of Divine Mercy as an intercession for Terri. Consider joining me.
Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
