We have started Holy Week and normally the blessing of the oils by the Bishop would be taking place right now. But this year is different as our ability to move about and be together has been greatly limited by the circumstances present in the world today. Earlier this morning, I was reflecting on this being my 25 year anniversary for entering the Church. I was someone who told his wife he would never become Catholic. I have learned to not tell God what I am not going to do! From coming into the Church to now becoming a Deacon, none of this was in my long range plans back when I first met my wife. But this is exactly what God does, He puts people in our path that draws us closer to Him. But we have to be paying attention because the Lord is placing people and circumstances in front of us all the time that call us closer to Him. As we enter into this Holy Week. let us be attentive to how God is calling us into ministry.
