"We need just a fragment of contrition in our misery to release his love." Fr. Tadeusz Dajczer
When I read this quote, I immediately thought about a video I watched a few days ago about an atheist who was converted by a tragic experience that left him on a slab in a morgue. An atheist, Ian McCormack was stung by five box jellyfish, one of the deadliest creatures in the sea. What a story. He met God in a very personal way. God does not want the destruction of His children. He longs for our salvation. Remember the words of Mary at Fatima that many go to hell because there is no one to pray for them. Are you praying fervently for your loved ones? Probably. For your acquaintances? Maybe. How about for those you dislike and those who are actually enemies who have injured you? Hmm...I think we can all do better.
The only sad thing about this story is that Ian McCormack is not a Catholic. Let's pray for him to find the fullness of the truth in the Catholic Church.
