“He lived in God’s favorite place.”

That title caught my eye as I was leafing through the November 2011 edition of Restoration (published by Madonna House).  The article is a homily given by one priest at Madonna House at the funeral of another priest.  He speaks of the deceased as often being in “the right place for the wrong reason.”  A soul so abandoned to God that he didn’t always realize how God was using him.  “That’s why he showed up in so many of our lives just when we needed him to be there. Whatever he was up to—whether it was fixing a door or a chair—it often turned out that the real reason he was there was that you were there, and you needed him.” You can read the homily here.
