Thank you, Archbishop Thompson, for reaffirming God has a plan for us

This is to say “thanks” for Archbishop Charles C. Thompson’s column on life (Lazarus’ story shows God’s love and life-giving power”) in the July 28 issue of The Criterion.

There’s so much bad news on the TV—almost every night—that sometimes it’s easy to wonder: “God, where are you? Are you still in charge?”

The archbishop’s column reaffirms that God is not only in charge but has a plan for each of us, and that plan is centered on knowing him, being in a relationship with him, and life.

In the end, even death will not stop this plan, being swallowed up by life. In just a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, we will go from this world to the next and see Jesus.

Thank you, Archbishop Thompson, for the column and the friendly and encouraging reminder.
