This update from Father Z's blog brought tears to my eyes this morning. Through studying theology, I have come to a better understanding about how God's grace works, but actually witnessing it operating on such a grand scale in an event so close to home...well, it simply makes my heart sing.
God's beautiful people allowed themselves to be instruments of His love, acknowledging Christ in the orphans in Peru through gifts of proclamation, prayer, and donation. Each gift worked in harmony to enable such an overwhelming response. The press and the bloggers were able to proclaim the need, the readers were able to pray about the required action, and the donations flowed from their consideration.
This is the Church I know and love.
