When The Gospel is Perfectly Timed

Disclaimer right from the start, I am partially ripping this week's blog post off from a homily I heard this weekend, because it was just so darn good (thank you, Father). This weekend's Gospel was perfectly timed. Do you ever feel that way? Every once in a while, we hear the Sunday Gospel and think, "wow, this is just so perfect for what I'm/we're experiencing right now."

It's almost as if someone planned it that way! God often uses our liturgical calendar to bring us just the right message at just the right time. The Gospel from this past Sunday (that of the corporal works of mercy and "the least of these," if you zoned out) is just spot-on for us today.
