23rd August, 2005

In a mysterious way I was prevented from catching the intended bus (which went straight past me) and I changed direction, as if being led, and caught the next bus in to Parramatta Cathedral in time for Holy Mass.

During Holy Communion, I prayed, “O Lord, this is where You lead me, now I understand.” He replied, “Come, O come to Me. To overcome all these trials you must come to Me, to be fed by Me, to possess the Author of life. Have a great confidence in Me.”

Earlier today, I had reprimanded my grandson for disobedience. Definitely Our Lord was showing me not to be angry but to leave our trials in His hands. He wants us to come to Him to give us strength.
