Sometimes we need to discern
Discernment is very important for all of us as we often are presented with two good choices and do not know which one will be more pleasing to God. We need to pray and reflect when it is a serious choice that may be important for us and for others. Pope Francis, being a good Jesuit, had much to say in the last Chapter of Gaudete et Exsultatae on discernment. He said that discernment enables us to recognize the concrete means that the Lord provides to make us move beyond mere good intentions. That is something we need to reflect on today.
