Sometimes people ask me what I do all day. Well, besides editing books, which is my main assignment right now, I do anything that comes along.
This morning, for example, I took a call from an elderly gentleman who had a question about our Weekday Missal. He thought at first that the missal was mistaken because it didn't match what was in the missalette at his parish.
But today is the feast of the Sacred Heart, so the text for that feast is on a different page in the missal. I walked him through it and explained more about the layout of the missal and where to find things.
But I found myself being edified by this man. He said he's recently started to go to daily Mass and said he wants to "turn my life around." God bless him! He told me he feels he should have been doing this years ago. But what matters now is today. And he's going to Mass and praying each day, now, today. I'm sure the Lord is very pleased with him. Jesus surely holds this man, and others like him, in the burning furnace of love that is his Sacred Heart.
