No matter our age in life, it’s easy to think that we’re not where we should be in terms of our faith. We see someone else who’s on fire, and we might think – I don’t know as much, I can’t quote the Bible like them, I don’t know that prayer, I don’t even know what word he just said etc.
A small example could be the Rosary. Even being lifelong Catholics, we may know what the Rosary is, but if we were asked to pray it, we might come a little short.
The reality is, we are all not where we should be. But that’s no reason to give up and let our faith die by the wayside.
In the words of St Augustine, a powerhouse saint of the Church: “Late have I loved you, O Beauty ever ancient, ever new.”
St Augustine is what you might call a late bloomer as far as saints go. But, he’s a witness for us to the fact that God calls all of us, no matter where we are. But, we must respond to that call.
It’s not too late. Pick up the Bible, learn the Rosary, listen to podcasts, grow in faith. And remember, our faith will bloom in due time, that is when God says it’s time.
