Today's Sunday readings had a great message about fortitude and trust in God's plan, even when things don't seem to be going according to our plans. Habakkuk's cries to God, pointing out the evils and tragedies of the day are similar to our own cries about the government shutdown, jobs, food shelter, the lose of a loved one, our pains and sufferings.
We often don't see God's pain and the purpose of our crosses. God tells us in the Sunday readings to wait as see how his plans will come it's fulfillment.
Gravity, staring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney is the lastest block buster out in theaters. So the wife and I went to see it after mass today.
What a perfect movie to drive home the message from the Sunday meetings. A message of fortitude and not giving up even when faced with tragedy or when we feel at the end of our rope.
The scenes and special affects were spectacular, but the message of the movie is right on with God's message of hope and trust in Him.
Enjoy the movie!
