July 18, 2018 – Missions Impossible – Our Lives!

Do we ever face situations that are impossible for us? Perhaps we are in a difficult marriage and are tempted to divorce. Maybe we are involved in a relationship that we know is not right, but neither have we ended it. Into these and other “Missions Impossible” comes God’s grace. In Veritatis Splendor, St. John Paul II tells us that although Moses allowed divorce, it was not so “in the beginning”. He then explains that “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Mt 19:26). JPII is bringing to our attention that there was no salvation, no recovery of our place in Paradise lost by Adam and Eve, without Jesus and the grace coming from him. To acknowledge that we face impossible challenges in life is the first step in asking for the grace to overcome them!
