A Little Hung Up

When it was time for Holy Communion, I was thinking about the antiphon. There have been multiple occasions to think about how the way things appear is not how they are. Hope is the virtue of acting in accord with the promises of God, even though it doesn't seem to pay off.

It's right and good to say, "It doesn't look good." In fact, for me, an essential part of surrender to God is the frank acknowledgement that what ought to be is beyond my capacity.

Bless us, O Lord, as we linger upon your promises as our anchor.
