The Kindness of Strangers

But, they treat me better than Blanche DuBois...

Tonight, at Adoration, I will pray for all who have shown me kindness during this past week. I'm always amazed. I feel so unworthy and sinful. Well, I am sinful. I'm STILL the biggest sinner I know.

I may never actually meet these souls in this life. Maybe I'll recognize them in the next. They'll be resting on the bosom of the Lord as I look on from the darkness.

I'm the biggest sinner I know too. But despite that, Jesus still died for us (you and I). We may spend (quite) a bit of time in purgatory but I have a hard time believing we will go to Hell with our eyes so firmly fixed on the Lord.

RJW: I may have a hard time believing it too. Translation: don't want to believe it. Doesn't mean it may not happen. I never presume to guess the mind of Our Lord for Him.

Well, is presuming I'll be in darkness also presumption? Hmmm...

Hoping not to be presumptuous, may I suggest Psalm 51?
