Countdown to Glory - 16 days

October 10 means only 16 days left till The Italian Stalion The Predicament turns "almost 40" so we carry on with a countdown in which we take each day's readings and find a way to apply one of the passages to the life of Lino Rulli. And then, we have something VERY special waiting for Lino on October 26...and no, it won't require a restraining order. *or will it?

Naaman went down and plunged into the Jordan seven times
at the word of Elisha, the man of God.
His flesh became again like the flesh of a little child,
and he was clean of his leprosy.
Naaman returned with his whole retinue to the man of God.
On his arrival he stood before Elisha and said,
"Now I know that there is no God in all the earth,
except in Israel.
Please accept a gift from your servant."
Elisha replied, "As the LORD lives whom I serve, I will not take it;"
and despite Naaman's urging, he still refused.
Naaman said: "If you will not accept,
please let me, your servant, have two mule-loads of earth,
for I will no longer offer holocaust or sacrifice
to any other god except to the LORD."
Sometimes God isn't the one 'delivering' the message, in this case Elisha (who I was partly named for) brings the message of God's Love through healing the leper. In this way God is can be found working through Lino and The Catholic Guy Show. Some of us don't hear God calling, but we do hear what Lino has to say. I find the sarcasm and fun making to be a huge catalyst for listening. Naaman was brought to understanding and loving God through Elisha's healing and we have been brought closer to understanding and love of God through Lino's commentary.
