Morning Offering: 05. 28. 22

Today’s Reflection: God of Peace,
You told us very clearly:
Do not let your hearts be troubled
And do not let them be afraid.
But mine is. Both troubled and afraid.
Because my world, our world, isn’t easy.
And I want to be honest about that with you
And with my brothers and sisters, my traveling companions.
But help me to realize that this trouble and fear is not the whole story,
Because you promise, too, a nearness, a closeness,
A coming to make your home with me that brings me,
In my closer moments,
The tremendous hope of unspeakable peace.
Help me to dwell there with you,
My troubled and fearful heart and all,
Ready for your Spirit’s stirrings of peace.
Amen. — Fr. Garrett Gundlach, SJ.

I have a second blog, From A Reporters Notebook. Just wondering why comments from readers appear on it, under Recent Comments, but comments from readers do not appear on this blog. How do it 'fix' that so comments appear on this blog too.
