My name is David Muer, but more importantly, My wife's maiden name is Mary Lou Schulte.
It has never been truer...."that behind every good man...there is a better woman!"
After my first date with Mary Lou Schulte, I said a prayer, " to not blow this one!" At our marriage encounter when asked what I wanted from my spouse....I said... "I want someone who will make me a better man than I thought I could be".
BOTH MY PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED!
In Mary Lou's family, they had a priest. Fr. Frank Burns (Uncle Bud). I believe Uncle Bud was and is a saint! When I really want a prayer answered I pray to him! (You're welcome to borrow him!)
I had the great privilege of sitting with for hours, airing my Concerns about the Catholic Church and doubts I was having. In one of the conversations I received my salvation story From him. I remember it like it was yesterday. He said, (get ready here it comes!) "
David, there is more holiness in honest doubt than all the blind faith in the world!"
"THERE IS MORE HOLINESS IN HONEST DOUBT THAN ALL THE BLIND FAITH IN THE WORLD!"
"There is more holiness in honest doubt than all the blind faith in the world!"
I believe we should treat others the way we want to be treated and I believe we should love one another. Fr. Burns said many things that stuck with me. "We are a church of sinners". "Be quiet and sit down".
The most gracious thing that saved ME
Was my wife
And "Uncle Bud" saying (a saint to me)
"THERE IS MORE HOLINESS IN HONEST DOUBT THAN ALL THE BLIND FAITH IN THE WORLD".
So doubt away!
