Answered Prayers

The NCAA semifinal between Gonzaga and UCLA was one for the books.  It was the first time there was an overtime in a semifinal since about 1977.  In the beginning, Gonzaga was always about two points behind.  I said, “Lord, is this any way to treat a Catholic school?”  The game continued.  During the overtime, Gonzaga led by several points.

Then UCLA tied it up with about five seconds left to play.  One of the Gonzaga players (I don’t know his name) took the ball to midcourt and shot.  The ball went in the basket and the game was over.

Can you just hear me, a month from now, “My prayers never get answered.”  Isn’t that the way of us mortals?
