Finishing Up

Maria Shriver said it, and I think she’s right: “There are more people moving us forward than there are sowing division.  I surround myself with people who have faith.”

Among the people I know is a woman in her seventies who used a free airline ticket to go to Calcutta to work with the followers of Mother Therese.  It wasn’t easy adapting to the lifestyles of the nuns who make up her order, but they treated her with utmost respect, especially because of her age.  (The lifespan of an Indian woman is about sixty-seven.)

Of course she couldn’t stay too long (several months) but it was the kind of thing a woman would like to do to finish up her life.  I, however,  believe there are enough adverse circumstances right here for me to offer up to God, as Our Lady of Fatima requested.=
