“The mystery of human life links up with the Gospel paradoxes: the Gospel is the key to the lock of that mystery. We must believe when all looks hopeless, we must work because God works for us. Again and again a flash of something that looks miraculous will shine through the clouds that cover the divine presence in our midst. But oftenest, as our stories show, God will make use of secondary causes. And if one man is not neighbor to the wounded by the wayside, God will have to find another neighbor for him. For so humanity is divinely constituted: “Do not forget to do good and impart.” Maisie Ward
