MY CAR AND A MIRACLE

“Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” – Luke 11:27

Praying the rosary has been my habit every time I go home from work. I needed the comfort of the rosary especially because I rode in an old, rickety company car. I used to hate it. It looked Christmassy because the car was red but the paint was peeling so the green base color of the vehicle showed. It was always summer inside because the aircon didn’t work. Oh, but the car gave me an alibi whenever I was late for work — because it often conked out in the middle of nowhere.
I also had a company driver, so I really shouldn’t complain. But still, I’d pray the rosary in the car, asking Mary to intercede for my needs — including a better car.
Then, I learned about today’s reading, that God blesses those who hear His Word and observe it. So, I obeyed God, being grateful in all circumstances — the car included— until I learned to love it, especially when I see long lines of people waiting for a ride home.
As today’s reading promised, God eventually blessed my family through our son Paolo who bought us a new car. The first time I rode in the car, I noticed there was this medal with an image of Mary and the Infant Jesus mounted on the dashboard. We never knew who put it there.

REFLECTION:
Light dawns for the just; gladness, for the honest of heart.

Lord, give me a humble, obedient heart.
