Do right. Love goodness. And walk humbly. (Micah 6:1-4:6-8)
It had been months since Herman had last been on King Street. He really missed his friends there. The media nuns in the Pauline Book and Media Center had always been very kind to him, and that’s unusual. Not everyone is nice to a mouse. And not everything that had come down King Street recently was nice either.
KING ST. CHALLENGES …
Shops along this historic street were mostly closed because of the COVID pandemic. Herman was sorry that his human friends were affected by it, but he was glad that it didn’t have much effect on mice. And then, there was the riots. They were different from the peaceful protests that had visited the city. There were people who had visited with bad intentions.
“But that’s okay,” Herman thought to himself as he walked and prayed. “What Satan intends for bad, God can use for good (Gen 50:20). A blessing will visit this street soon,” he thought.
A GIFT FROM ST. DOMINIC …
Herman continued walking for several more blocks. He loved following in the spiritual foot steps of St. Dominic who had taught people to do lectio divine as they walked over 800 years ago. St. Dominic called it the eighth and ninth posture of holiness.
“God bless my friends and all the people who work on King Street or visit it,” the little mouse prayed. “Amen.”
It’s cool to be Catholic. COOL2B!
