It's A Small World

By Charles Sulzen

The old saying, “it’s a small world” still applies in today’s world. For example, I was doing Fatima visits in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, right next to St. Thomas More University.

Right now, since there are not enough of us for all teams to have two members, I am going solo for a while. Hence, I do half of the work in the beginning and the other half of the work while everyone else is watching the video. So I have given the first part of the talk and was getting ready for the second part out in the van.

In the first part of the presentation, the Custodian traditionally wears the TFP cape. While I am outside getting ready for the second part, I do not worry about taking the cape off. That day I finished a little early and was sitting in the driver side practicing my bagpipe chanter.

Toward the end of my practice, I noticed a young man walking down the street. When he saw me, he stopped and stared in my direction. After a few seconds, he walked quickly up to the van and asked, “Are you part of TFP?”

I replied, “Yes.”

He said, “Wow, can I meet you? I have been keeping up on everything that you do on YouTube. I have watched every video on you people. What you’re doing is great!”

After we talked for a little I invited him inside to visit for a short while before he continued on his way. I cannot help but think, how many more are out there that have done the same.

It brings to mind what Our Lord tells us in Scripture, “The harvest is great, but the laborers are few.”
