Story 95105

Primary tabs

I have had the exquisite privilege of visiting with Fr. Thomas for many years and even living with him for a few. There are too many treasured memories to try and recount here. However, I would like to share what he told me over and over and over again, "Matthew, when you think you are getting worse, you are getting better." For years, I had little understanding of what he was trying to teach me, but by the grace of God, I think I am beginning to comprehend. After many years of trying to work up the nerve, I finally gave him a big kiss one day (we always hugged) at the end of one of our meetings, and I thanked him for his teachings, which had changed my life ... he responded, "Matthew, if I have taught you anything of value, it was from the Spirit."
