Thank you Fidelis and Kate – I love this story and will re-read it tonight. I believe this story is sometimes the answer to contentious arguments that non-Catholics and sometimes non-Christians may want to draw us into.
I don’t recite the story, but somtimes I just believe that each of us praying God’s will be done in our lives and praying for each other is the best answer – like this story.
Then Almighty God will decide what to do about our altar (of prayer).
I have always loved this story though. Very applicable to our times I believe.
