Recently it was announced that my parish Monsignor was to be transfered to the next city over. But before he left, he gave me a great gift, and showed me something I would not have seen on my own.
I am often asked to serve at funerals, which are always said by Monsignor. Sometimes after the funeral mass, Monsignor would pull me aside, open his wallet, and give me a little gift. I always tried to refuse it, but what Monsignior gives, he does not take back!
Later I realized that the real gift wasn’t the money he had pushed into my hand, but his example of generosity. My humble Monsignor is a man with little in this world, but anyone and everyone sees his great spiritual wealth. By giving me that worldly gift he was showing me a truth which would bring me closer and closer to greater spiritual wealth.
What are holy people in your life really trying to give you?
For Our Lady and my lady!
