Unthinkable impossibilities - like the Saints being 13-0. Do we dare to think 14-0?
The homily this evening was about unthinkable impossibilities that give way to save realities. An unthinkable impossibility like a virgin conceiving the child of God by the Holy Spirit so that He could walk among us as one of us. And what a saving reality that unthinkable impossibility was!
In our own lives there are unthinkable impossibilities - addictions, struggles, family issues. But given to God (and not taken back), we can be open to saving realities - in His way, not ours.
Edited to add: Perhaps 14-0 was an unthinkable impossibility. But perhaps this loss will be a "saving reality" for the Saints. If they have to play Dallas in the play-offs, perhaps we'll be ready for them!
