A Tiny Glimpse At Fr. Sam's Faith

Living To Age 90

Recently, with Father Sam Johnston's 82nd birthday looming, one of his natural sisters asked him how long he expected to live. He said he planned to live until age 90.

His sister then asked if God had told him that. Fr. Sam answered: "No, I told Him." As he explained it to me, "This is the most exciting time ever for the Church. Do you think I want to miss it?"

So, Fr. Sam told God what God should do? Actually, I don't think so. Fr. Sam and God are on such good terms, that Fr. Sam told God what he wanted, and he believes that God will honour that wish.

Works for me.
