It’s Iimi! When God Closes a Door, He Opens a Window…

The expression When God closes a door, He opens a window is trite to be sure. But have we ever considered what it really means when we go beyond using it as a meaningless condolence?

Iimi is staggered by how a rumor turned her into a pariah right on the heels of what happened to Paula. She feels angry with God and feels guilty about feeling angry. But Father Gabe reminds her of what Pope Francis said on being angry with God (June 3, 2020) and encourages her to think about what this saying means.

We might have a hard time with reconciling God’s being all powerful and loving with what happens to us (and there are some enduring tragedies that might make me collapse if I had to face them). But God does love us and work to our good, even if we can’t always see it.
