"It's Gonna Be Ok!"

Be-Ok

“It’s Gonna Be Ok!”  While I was driving in my car yesterday, I heard these words on the radio.  About a week ago, after going to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, I decided to change my radio station from country music to Christian music.  I realized that swearing had become commonplace in my life and I wondered if it was because of the music I was listening to.  Many of the songs on the radio had small swear words in them and I think my mind went numb to them.

In my walk of the Christian life, trust has also been something I have struggled with from time to time.  In fact, when I was 20, I directed a retreat and I got to choose my own theme for the weekend. In prayer, very quickly, the theme, “No Doubt”, came to me.  I choose a song for the weekend by a Christian band called Petra, also called, “No Doubt”.  (It is still one of my go to songs today when I am struggling!) My theme revolved around the story of Doubting Thomas and his doubt of the resurrected Jesus.   I had a beautiful banner made that had Jesus and Thomas embracing with the words: “My Lord and My God!” I have always thought Thomas got the raw end of the stick.  One time he expressed that he needed to see Jesus, and he was given the nickname of Doubting Thomas for the rest of eternity.  His words of “My Lord and My God!” have become a beautiful prayer that the Church still prays today.  Thomas had great faith in the Lord and in that weak moment of doubt I am sure he learned a lot.

Wow!!!  Yes, that is the correct word to begin this blog post!  I think I am still in shock!  On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our country just experienced the overturning of an almost 50-year-old law regarding abortion.  Roe vs. Wade was overturned!

“Tell us, Mary: say what thou didst see upon the way.  The tomb the Living did enclose; I saw Christ’s glory as He rose!” Victimae Paschali, Sequence for Easter Sunday Victimae Paschali Laudes, the medieval sequence chanted before the proclamation of the Gospel on Easter Sunday, tries to express in beautifully inadequate words the reality of what we celebrate during the Easter liturgy.
