Fr. Corapi: Apostle of Hope

On the way to work I saw two cars, one turning right and the other turning left. I stopped and waved for them to go. The car turning right went first but impatiently I didn't allow the one turning left to go, despite there being no cars coming the other way.

I felt discouraged that I failed in such a small matter to "do unto others as I would have them do to me". But then I listened to Fr. Corapi and he said something very pertinent like, "what do you do if you are weak and feel of little account and of little service? Do not grow discouraged but look to St. Therese and the 'little way'. Know that in weakness there is strength, and boast as St. Paul did of his weakness. It's an opportunity for God to show His great love." Very encouraging and I resolved to do better, if only in the littlest things.
