St. John Chrysostom taught: "God attached so much importance to his (man's) salvation that He did not spare His own Son for the sake of man. Nor does He ever cease to work, trying every possible means, until He has raised man up to Himself and made him sit at His right hand" (Catechism, 358). The Lord uses every means to call us to conversion. For example, by the Jews' "transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles" (Rm 11:11). Then the conversion of the Gentiles is "to stir Israel to envy" (Rm 11:11) "and save some of them" (Rm 11:14). Because the Lord wants all saved (1 Tm 2:4), the Lord wants to bring us to conversion through joys, sorrows, birth, death, health, sickness, marriage, divorce, victories, failures, peace, rejection, hopes, loneliness, etc.
List three significant events of this week. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to the truth (Jn 16:13) that the Lord is using these events to lead you to a deeper conversion. Don't complain about what is happening in your life, but say with Mary: "I am the slave of the Lord. Let it be done to me according to Your word" (Lk 1:38, our transl). Rejoice even "to suffer the distress of many trials" (1 Pt 1:6) "because you are achieving faith's goal, your salvation" (1 Pt 1:9). "All that matters is that one is created anew" (Gal 6:15).
