The Gravity of Worrying

September 23 Padre Pio of Pietrelcina “The Gravity of Worrying” Proverbs 21:1-6, 10-13 Lk. 8:19-21

Padre Pio said: “Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and I will here your prayer.”

Tonight as I began preparing the meal for tomorrow,. I received a phone call from a friend who was concerned because I turned down a speaking engagement. I turn down a lot of speaking engagements, simply because they take me away from guys like “Rabbit” who was pan handling for food tonight–I fed him and spent time with him. This ministry was created to work with individuals like “Rabbit”, and that is simply what I do, I am here in in their midst. I am simply a pastor, and frankly that is all I have ever wanted to be. The Word is made flesh in the “Rabbits” I see every day. And so like Padre Pio I “pray, hope, and don’t worry.” Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
