Apart from the driver, a business man and a hippy with only one show was all that was on the bus, the business man noticed he was only wearing one shoe, and an expansion of love and pity for the boy grew in the business mans heart for the hippy, and, as he walked over to share in the hippys pain he said ''excuse me son, but you evidently lost a shoe'' ...''no man'' replied the Hippy, ''I found one''.
it is evident to me, that does not mean it is true.
I am a simple lay person who has a great love for God and his church. In the mid summer of 2007 a pair of rosary beads arrived through my door in Scotland and in the spring of 2008, found my self home in Ireland to be a fully practicing catholic. The only interests I have are in bringing people back to God.
I am not a person who has the wish to use God for his own personal agenda, but to the contrary, give him something back for as he himself said that ''when a man has had a great deal given him, a great deal will be demanded of him;'' I read also about how the Lord spoke to a mystic called Vassula Ryden who was put down for her refusal to be silent on her relationship with Christ, that she should refuse to be like that wicked servant who hid his talent and then was condemned for having done nothing. I tend to take heed to these words also, as should everyone else.
God bless and take care
