Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

Diane, a young Christian university student, was home
for the summer. 
She had gone to visit some friends one
evening and the time passed quickly as each shared
their various experiences of the past year.
She ended up staying longer than she had planned
and had to walk home alone.
 But she wasn't afraid because
it was a small town and she lived only
a few blocks away.
As she walked along under Publish Poster the tall elm trees,
Diane asked "God" to keep her safe from harm and danger.
When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to
her house, she decided to take it.
However, halfway
down the alley she noticed a man standing at the
end as though he was waiting for her. 
She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for
"God's" protection.
Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and
security wrapped around her, she felt as though
someone was walking with her.
 When she reached the
end of the alley, she walked right past the man
and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the paper that a young
girl had been raped in the same alley, just twenty
minutes after she had been there.
Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it
could have been her, she began to weep.
 Thanking the Lord
for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go
to the police station.
She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her
The police asked her if she would be willing to look
at a lineup to see if she could identify him.
 She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the
alley the night before.
When the man was told he had been identified, he
immediately broke down and confessed.
The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was
anything they could do for her.
She asked if they would ask the man one question.
Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.
When the policeman asked him, he answered,
"Because she wasn't alone. 
She had two tall men
walking on either side of her."
Don't underestimate the power of Prayer.
As I walk God walks with me!
