Dealing with Disagreements

As our conversion progresses, we will find that we still sometimes disagree with others. When we want to advise them, where should we go? Before our conversion took place, we might go anywhere-- perhaps to a park or a restaurant or even to our office. But once our conversion is taking place, we may consider going to the best place of all to share our thoughts and advice with someone else. Where might that be? Before the Blessed Sacrament. There we can ask God to intervene and to guide us as we struggle with the question at hand. Scripture tells us to "draw near to God and God will draw near to you." How much closer can we get than in his very presence in the Lesson Sacrament?
