Comment on God works through the least of His creatures by Susan Bailey http://susanbailey.org/2011/09/05/god-works-through-the-least-of-his-creatures/comment-page-1/#comment-3792 Susan Bailey Tue, 06 Sep 2011 22:53:56 +0000 http://susanbailey.org/?p=1826#comment-3792 Thank you! Animal lovers know what this is about but I also wanted people who are not animal lovers to understand the blessings that I received. I know that cat and dog lovers understand how painful it can be. I'm sorry for the loss of your dog, it can be so upsetting. I'm sure he/she was a loyal and dear friend for many years. God bless all His creatures! Thank you!

Comment on God works through the least of His creatures by Irene http://susanbailey.org/2011/09/05/god-works-through-the-least-of-his-creatures/comment-page-1/#comment-3789 Irene Tue, 06 Sep 2011 20:49:54 +0000 http://susanbailey.org/?p=1826#comment-3789 Hello Susan, I met you at a retreat for women that you gave with your friend Ann last March in Nh. It was a wonderful retreat that has led me deeper into my relationship with Christ. I have been reading your blog since then. I was particulary touched by this article about the death of your beloved cat, as my husband and I recently had to put down our dog. I was sorry though that you felt the need to apologise for your grief. No need! God gave you the greatest gift of all - Love - to and from this cat. Of course you would greive his loss! The gift of Love in what ever form it takes is always the greatest gift of all. You obviously deeply loved this cat. Sincerly, Irene Hello Susan,

Comment on Perhaps Fr. John Corapi is still teaching us by Susan Bailey http://susanbailey.org/2011/07/14/perhaps-fr-john-corapi-is-still-teaching-us/comment-page-1/#comment-2463 Susan Bailey Thu, 14 Jul 2011 15:58:24 +0000 http://susanbailey.org/?p=1759#comment-2463 That's a great analogy, about the alcoholic. It reminds me of the part in the article about the prostitute who became a nun, grew tired of the religious life and fell away, but ended up coming back. Prayer taps into the power of God who is SO ready and willing to give it when we ask. That’s a great analogy, about the alcoholic.

Comment on Perhaps Fr. John Corapi is still teaching us by Jim Logue http://susanbailey.org/2011/07/14/perhaps-fr-john-corapi-is-still-teaching-us/comment-page-1/#comment-2462 Jim Logue Thu, 14 Jul 2011 15:54:22 +0000 http://susanbailey.org/?p=1759#comment-2462 I was reading the same article. Another sentence near the end of her article caught my attention: "We can scoff or laugh or condemn him for ruining his own conversion story, but our duty is to pray him back home." It made me think of how we often overcome obstacles, we turn to God, but then something happens and we fall into sin again. A good example is an alcoholic who goes off the bottle, but something happens and they end of drinking again. Or a gambler who fails and goes back to the tracks again. They don't need our condemnation, they need our prayers. This happens to us all the time, athough most of the time we don't get as much press as Fr. Corapi did. Just as we pray for our brothers and sisters, our children, our parents who have fallen away, we also need to pray for well-known people who fail. They are no less human than we are, even though the press tends to present them in that light. That's one of the worst things about being a "celebrity", the person becomes a commodity. Certainly, we cannot support some of things they do, but we can still pray for them. That is our vocation. Pray for each other. God bless! I was reading the same article.
