Homily from the Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time.
"Here is Ignatius, he said to make a list of pros and cons, take your counsel, think it out, pray it out, and then take some tentative steps, and if you need to adjust, then adjust. And the last tip from Ignatius was this: after all of that, if you still don't know what to do, use your imagination. Imagine: what would the best version of myself choose right now? If I was faced with this choice, what would the best me choose at this point? He also said this, "What choice do you want to hand to the Lord when you die? After you've died, if you had these two decisions, these two choices, which one do you want to present to the Lord and say, 'God, I chose this. And I chose this for You'? If it ever becomes clear, choose that one.' "
