Keep Me Humble…

Blessed be God forever…
After meeting and briefing the parents on the 12 week program whose children will be receiving first Holy Communion this year. I felt a little drained but as I made a commitment to serve the Gloria Patri Healing EC today, decided to pull up my socks and go.

Just as I was leaving, it only then occurred to me that it was a healing mass. So I was contemplating whether to pray for my own healing. Instead I said this short prayer, I said, “Lord if it is Your Will I be healed then You would have healed me. Perhaps Lord this is a torn in my side to keep me humble and so let it be Lord.”

Just a few days earlier that is during our LTW Fellowship session I was joking with the group that about a week ago when I had a quarrel with her I felt that my wife was the torn in my side to keep me humble.

Then just before the EC was starting a member of the Gloria Patri ministry asked me to do the second reading.

Second reading
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
In view of the extraordinary nature of these revelations, to stop me from getting too proud I was given a thorn in the flesh, an angel of Satan to beat me and stop me from getting too proud! About this thing, I have pleaded with the Lord three times for it to leave me, but he has said, ‘My grace is enough for you: my power is at its best in weakness.’ So I shall be very happy to make my weaknesses my special boast so that the power of Christ may stay over me, and that is why I am quite content with my weaknesses, and with insults, hardships, persecutions, and the agonies I go through for Christ’s sake. For it is when I am weak that I am strong.

Praise God, and my wife came in time to participate in the Eucharistic celebration.
