A Moment of Acceptance

The readings today are watery. Philip baptises the Ethiopian, travelling from Jerusalem on his chariot.

I was sitting there at Mass waiting for the Eucharistic prayer to end.

I suddenly had this moment of acceptance. It is not wrong to want to achieve things, run things. It is a worthy ambition, just get on with it. Some things may happen, others not. Some few successes, other times not. Others will have far greater successes, accept it.

“No one can come to me unless he is drawn by the Father who sent me.” (John 6:44-51)
