Road danger: Most accidents happen next to home. Angels to the rescue.

road danger t-bone avoided

Today saw a zillion miles put on Sassy the Subaru with Mass and Communion calls up in Graham county. Vigilant situational awareness was very useful as always, but one tends to relax a bit when right near home. In the picture above, I’m only about 150 yards away from the rectory. Yet, I was still paying attention. The second I saw this lady in her car way down her alleyway to the right, I just knew she was an accident waiting to happen with me. I could have sworn that she looked right at me before she pulled out right in front of me. Had I not immediately slammed on the brakes I would have totally T-boned her driver’s side door, leaving her as a heap of broken bones. I hope I always remember to say the “Angel of God my guardian dear…” prayer as I did every time I started the car today. Do you remember to ask for help from your guardian angel?

    My young parish priest makes the Sign of the Cross before a car journey. The first time I accepted a lift from him I was not sure whether I should do the same. I decided not to as he might think I was not fully confident in his driving!!

    Yesterday, a friend told me that a beloved parish priest, Father Becker, was given 12 hours to live. Everyone in the room began a rosary for his happy death. A few hours later, he went to his eternal reward. Father Becker was my longtime Confessor. He was the Priest who taught me (unbeknownst to him) to say “Jesus, I love you.”

    I would appreciate it if you would remember him by name, during your next Mass. His name is Fr. Robert Becker.
