Consider It Joy When We Are Crushed And Broken


Fr. Michael Scanlan, TOR, 
former President and former Chancellor 
of the Franciscan University of Steubenville
R.I.P. my dear friend.

I truly miss my dear friend and mentor, Fr. Michael Scanlan, TOR, especially when just the two of us walked around the hills surrounding the Franciscan University of Steubenville discussing theology.  When Father was a guest on my radio talk show he shared a word from the Lord with our listening audience that was given to him when his journey had reached bottom, and a word we should all openly embrace within our own hearts whenever we are crushed and broken:

"Now you are broken and helpless. You can't possibly continue as you have in the past. Now I will show you MY ministry, and all you have been doing will be organized around it. You are sufficiently out of the way, with your eyes seeking me, for me to move with MY ministry, unmistakably marked with my character."

Father Michael Scanlan, T.O.R.
