Q: Do I need organized prayers to connect to You?

MG: No, but you need organized prayers to connect to a community of faith.

Q: How are the saints and righteous people different from the rest of us?

MG: Basically, they're just more saintly and righteous than the rest of us! Seriously, they don't have to try to be good. They're good by instinct. They are pure.

Q: If I'm hit by a truck and die crossing the street today without having made up with my wife, am I doomed?

MG: If you don't make up with your wife today, you may wish that you'd been hit by a truck.

Q: I know that more times of intense pain will come for me on earth. Will You walk with me?

MG: Yes, just don't walk too fast.

Q: How can I, such a lowly creature on a developing planet, be special in Your eyes, as my faith teaches me that I am?

MG: It's a balancing act. On the days you feel special, remember that you're just dust and ashes. On the days you feel like dust and ashes, remember that God made you just a little lower than the angels.
