In this reflection for the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Patrick and Catherine Sullivan remind us that God is with us, and because we are made in his image, we don’t need to complicate things, we just need to be genuine, consistent, and persistent.
God loves us and wants to know us. He wants to be with us in a real and loving relationship. And just like any relationship, you don’t need to overcomplicate things. Sometimes a good relationship is just holding someone’s arms up, figuratively speaking of course, or just trusting, being consistent.

Catherine and Patrick Sullivan
Married on the feast of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Catherine and Patrick Sullivan have always had a love for education. Catherine is a teacher and writer. After earning a master's degree in theology from the University of Notre Dame, she has spent nearly a decade teaching religion and English to middle and high school students. Patrick is a high school administrator and avid runner. Also holding a master’s degree in theology from the University of Notre Dame, his theological background continues to inform the work he does today. As parents, both Catherine and Patrick are grateful for the opportunity to receive the sacraments as well as a generously sized cup of coffee.
