My Journey to God

Seek and See God in the Chaos

In tragedy, in trial
     seek God in the chaos.
In sickness and poor health
     see God in doctors and nurses.
In natural disasters
     see God in neighbor helping neighbor.
In hunger
     see God in food pantry volunteers.
In prison
     see God in prison ministers.
In emotional distress
     see God in concerned family and friends.
In the death of loved ones
     see God in the help of the parish.
In the death of sin
     see God in the mercy of confession.
And in 9/11
     see God in a cross of beams,
     in ecumenical outreach,
     in the prayers of the Church
     and in every first responder
          who searched for life,
          who gave their life,
          who lived to serve again.
