Stopped on the way home and while in check out line noticed a man watching me; inspecting the collar. “So, you a Priest?” Yes, I am. “So, you believe in miracles?” Yes. “Why? all a bunch of bull.”
I smiled, put his bread on the counter and said “I am not smart enough to explain it. All I know is I believe in Jesus; he is my everything, and somehow I know He is true. His miracles are real - even today. It happens”
He was never angry or pointed. He smiled a bit. As I was paying the cashier, I said - I consider it is a miracle that someone had the guts to ask me the question.
Said goodbye and left told him “my brother, I will say a prayer for you tonight.” He looked at me and said “thanks” I am always blessed by sacred encounters.
