Very funny, God, very funny.

I wasn't looking forward to Mass yesterday.  Mass has been really difficult for me lately, and I kept thinking, "Just get through it".  Then, as I walked into church, our pastor grabbed me and asked me to lector.  The man who'd been scheduled couldn't do it, and our pastor knew I could do it without too much prep.

Very funny, God.

And then, just to make sure that I REALLY got the point, the Gospel was about righteous anger, as if God wanted to point out that my anger was okay with him.  And then, to REALLY, REALLY make sure, the Gospel said:  "....he [Jesus] knew them all, and did not need anyone to testify about human nature.  He himself understood it well."

Uh, I got it.  Very funny, God, very funny.  I am trying.  Thanks for the reminder.
