Personal Mistakes

Sometimes we get depressed because we have made mistakes in our dealings with others.  In Christ’s life, any errors he made were corrected by the Father.

Take for example our concept of his saying about eating the body and blood of Christ.  This was corrected when at the Last Supper he took bread and wine and said this was his body and blood.  Our negative picture of what this meant was changed and elevated, and it is today the highpoint of the Mass.

Our heavenly father treats us in like manner.  Of course, we are seldom aware of it, for His ways are secret, even to us.  Let’s follow, nevertheless, and learn to take our own faults with good humor, and if we can’t correct them, at least we’ll put up with them, and be at peace.
