Passing God by

On a family trip to Las Vegas this summer, I observed something that moved me.

Located on “the strip” is a seemingly tiny Catholic church that you might miss if you didn’t realize it was there. It’s a shame that a visit to the Guardian Angel Cathedral would take a lower priority to the shows, slots and card tables. It did in my case since I kept on driving.

You would think I would spend a few minutes with God but no: The feast at the buffet beckoned.

We Christians should never forget that all that we have ever and will ever need and want is available in the tabernacle in that church and every Catholic church. The buffet can wait.
