Talking faith

A broken man in financial trouble came to his Priest and declared: “I have lost everything!”

The Priest replied, “I am sorry that you have lost your faith!”

“No!”, the man retorted, “I have not!”

“Then I am saddened that you no longer have your character!” said the Priest. “No!” the man replied again, “I still have my character!”

“Well, has your belief in God’s Grace gone?”… “No, I still have that!”

The Priest concluded, “What then, did you mean by everything?”

During troubles we need to reconsider what is important in our life, then re-adjust our inner compass.
