God opens doors

The other day I said Mass at a Catholic retreat center in Northeastern Vermont for a group of people visiting from Rhode Island. It had been a very long weekend and I was tired. I got lost trying to find this very remote location and I was frustrated with myself that I was late and that they had to wait for me.

The people however were very kind and took up a collection during the Mass which I donated to the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children in honor of the Mary Theotokos Retreat Center. I was happy to do it. I was also happy that the couple that run the retreat center are very interested in learning more about The St. Nicholas Project and our apostolate to help the children's home with material and financial donations.

I was so delighted that they were interested because now we have made new friends for The St. Nicholas Project. See, God opened a door for us. If I had never accepted to say Mass there that evening--and I was very tempted not to accept the invitation--the door to new friendships would have remained closed.

Our St. Nicholas Project donors are wonderful and caring people. They want to help the children who come from troubled homes and who live and go to school at Kurn Hattin. As much as one hears about "bad" news in the media, I am truly convinced that there is a lot more "good" news taking place in the world. We have to tell the world about the good news. We have to tell the world about the good things taking place at the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children. Every day I pray that God will open another door for us to be able to share that good news. I am so thankful that He does. Please help us with your donation today! God bless you!
