Prayer does work

Prayer does work

That guy who was selling the Eucharist on eBay has had a change of heart. The administrator of the Diocese of Sioux City met with the guy selling the Host and says the following:

According to Msgr. Augustine, the seller deeply regretted the effort to sell the Eucharist and extended a personal apology to him, the diocese and any others who had been offended by the eBay listing. Because the transaction never materialized, there was no money exchanged or received.

“The Eucharist detailed in the eBay auction was given to Msgr. Augustine and has been properly disposed of according to the dictates of Catholic Church law,” states a diocesan press release.

This is the Lord making straight with crooked paths. Thousands of Catholics have had their faith in the Eucharist tested and have had to publicly state their faith in their protests to eBay and others. And this formerly unrepentant blasphemer has apparently repented, has met with the highest ranking Catholic leader in his diocese, and has received an amazing witness to the truths of the faith.

I would not be surprised to find out later that he has converted. Perhaps that’s the next thing we should all be praying for.
