The Good Old Days: Part V


After returning from the Cathedral where he updated Bishop Bob on his mission to discover where the good old days had gone, Deacon Guy became aware that he was getting frustrated. Though he had interviewed many members of Holy Trinity parish, the Deacon was still no closer to the truth than he was on that day when he began working on this project.

The good old days were proving to be an elusive treasure to find.


The Bible tells us that even before we know a problem exists, God knows the solution. He knows everything (Ps 139:4).

The Catechism explains that Jesus wants a childlike response from us to the knowledge and power of our heavenly Father. God takes care of our every need, leaving us the luxury of seeking first his kingdom and his righteousness in our daily lives (CCC 305).

That’s why Deacon Guy did what he did. He went to his quiet place and got down on his knees to pray. Long ago, he had learned the importance of listening for God’s still small voice (1 Kings 19:11-13).


There was no audible voice, but Deacon Guy was certain he had heard from God. The message was clear. There was still another man in his parish that he had not yet interviewed. And whether that man realized it or not, he had the answer to Deacon’s question.

Deacon Guy knew the man well. It would not be long before the old Deacon sat down to talk with his friend, Jose.


That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. It’s cool to be Catholic. COOL2B!

In Christ.
