Daily homily thoughts, 8/1

Today we celebrate the feast of St Alphonsus Liguori, founder of the Redemptorists. The motto of the order is Copiosa Apud Eum Redemptio.  In English: With Him is Plentiful Redemption.  Jesus redeems it all.  That takes the pressure off a little. Sometimes I wonder and worry, did I make the right decision here?  I prayed about it, but I could have been wrong. I’m sure often I am. God redeems it. And he redeems not only our wrong decisions, but also our sins, our mistakes, our failures, our quirks.  Praise Him.
