The Father Knows Best (Homily for the 17th Sunday by Fr. Joel)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 17th Sunday. We have a script in our mind that plays out our ideal life. It often happens that twists and turns and tragedies keep us from realizing the script. It seems like God does not want us to be happy, but the truth is, he has a much better life planned than we could imagine. We have to trust that God really does know better than we do. One of the hardest areas to trust is with our children. This is why the Church advocates Natural Family Planning, a method of regulating births that profoundly lives our Christian belief that the Father knows best. (25 Jul 2010)
