Lent ……. Day Thirty-Two

Lent ……. Day Thirty-Two

“Ah! In spite of my littleness, I would like to enlighten souls as did the Prophets and the Doctors” (Story of a Soul, 192)
St. Therese of Lisieux

I love the original reality show on TV.  Sporting events.  They are full of surprises, drama and uncontrollable emotions.   We cheer for our favorite player to make the “big” play!  We glorify them when they do and they glorify themselves as well!  (the chest pump, dance etc.)
The real heroes in my opinion, are the players that go unnoticed.  The ones who set up the “big star” to shine, the little guy, like St. Therese.

If God is the Big Guy, Head Coach of our lives,  then who are His assistants?  Well for the catholic Church it is the pope.   He is God’s assistant coach, he helps get us ready for the big game, the presentation, meeting, debates etc.  We also have a lot of other assistant coaches that mentor us and lead us, our bishop, our pastors, our team leaders.  And in turn maybe we are the leader of our small group or you are coaching an associate at work and informing them of what the popes role is.   So as it has been said, we are all saints in the making and maybe prophets, but for now let’s lean on our Coach and pray for our assistant coaches!
