A Tweed Coat

Location: San Diego, CA USA

By: Olivia Solomon

In 1974 while employed with Mercy
Hospital and working late hours, I had
a car that had a disfunctional Gas Gage. While driving home after Midnight
along Highway 163 southbound my car gave out. Because it was Raining and I couldn't see a thing as I pulled over, I paniced and began to scream for God.My windows were Fogged and my windsheild wipers were bad. Suddenly there was a tap on my Driver side Window. I couldn't figure out who this person was. Because of the Gas Fumes,I gave up and put the Window down. A Black Bearded man with a wet tweeded Coat kept signaling me to move over. With no choice but to do what he wanted me to, I moved over to the Passenger side. This man, (out of no where) started my Car right up and drove it 300 feet away from a Gas Station and told me to grab the Steering wheel. my car was coasting so
it was easy for him to get out. As I
coasted into the Gas Station on the corner of 10th and A street, the Gas
Attendent asked why I was on the Passenger side. I explained to him that
the man out in the Street had helped me pull my Car off the side of the Freeway. The Gas Station Attendent looked around and there was no one anywhere. I explained the whole story to him and the stranges thing, was the smell of Tweed fabric in my Car and the Driver side was Dry. Almost twenty years later while jogging by the Bay, a man fitting his description was sitting on a Bench and I had a very Sad feeling as I looked at him. As I turned to Jog back to my Office I usually would buy a Yogurt but instead I had this impulse to give him my Money and I did. I will never forget the sound of his voice when he thanked me, it was the exact voice that I heard in my Car, "Move over Lady"

Irenaeus of Lyon wrote these words - The glory of God gives life; those who see God receive life. For this reason, God-who cannot be grasped, comprehended, or seen-allows Himself to be seen, comprehended, and grasped by men, that He may give life to those who see and receive Him. It is impossible to live without life, and the actualization of life comes from participation in God, while participation in God is to see God and enjoy His goodness.
Learning from St Irenaeus How to Know God

This great defender of the faith insisted on the central claim of Christianity: God can be known and loved-indeed, that is why He came ... continue reading
