I was driving home from work on a two-lane highway when a few cars in front of me slowed and stopped as a car ahead was turning left. I braked, but saw the car behind me was not slowing down in time to stop. The impact from the car rearending mine caused my glasses to fly off, but I was unhurt. When I exited the car, the other driver, a young black man asked, “Are you all right? I’m so sorry. I didn’t know you were stopping. It happened so fast.” I assured him I was okay.

Of course they had played in the past, but  – somehow  – the 1939 football game between Holy Cross College of Worchester, Massachusetts and the University of Georgia that year stands out. For one thing, their rivalry was followed avidly by readers of the Bulletin of the Catholic Layman’s Association. Sports were big and, more than that, they were a pleasant distraction from what was going on in the U.S. and, even more significantly, abroad.

“How can I be a saint,” 7-year-old Isabel asked me the other day. We were talking about Mary, Jesus’ mommy, and Isabel told me she wanted to be like her.

 

In these kinds of parenting moments, it can be temping to climb up on a soapbox and start really unloading the information. But the beautiful thing about talking with a 7-year-old is that you have to be brief.

It took only three minutes of standing behind Magan at the resort check-in desk before I knew we had to find everyone some distraction, and fast. 

 

Only 19 hours earlier, a discreetly-placed set of mouse ears in my birthday card had given away the surprise of a trip to Disney World--six of those hours on the road and maybe (I mean, maybe) five more tied up in anyone actually sleeping.

A menudo oramos para que se haga la voluntad de Dios en nuestras vidas, nuestras familias, nuestras comunidades, nuestra Iglesia y el mundo entero. Cada vez que rezamos la oración más perfecta, el Padre Nuestro, pedimos a Dios que se haga su voluntad en la tierra como en el cielo. En nuestro idioma tenemos tantas maneras de evocar la voluntad de Dios con respecto a eventos futuros usando expresiones como “Dios quiera,” “Primero Dios,” “Si Dios lo permite.” y “Si Dios la licencia” para nombrar algunas.Oramos para que se haga la voluntad de Dios, pero ¿cómo sabemos si la estamos haciendo?

We often pray for God’s will to be done in our lives, our families, our communities, our church and the world. Every time we pray the perfect prayer, the Our Father, we ask for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
