Peter said, “God has shown me that I should not call anyone profane or unclean.” - Acts 10:28 (NRSV)
At 61, with a new degree, I was discouraged. I had not received the job I had applied for with great hope. But then I received a phone call from the monastery where I’d been on a waiting list for a retreat. They had an opening that very weekend.
What do I call profane that God blesses?

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
