This is an excerpt from the full interview on The Life of a Priest, a podcast available in the Tabella Catholic App.
Father Manny Alvarez is the pastor of the Church of the Little Flower in Coral Gables, Florida. In this excerpt he shares his passion for golf and finds a connection between golf and the spiritual life.
Jesus gives a little bit of hope and then you play bad the right, but it’s that one good golf shot you had or that one good putt that you sank that says, oh no, next time I go, I’m gonna play better or I’m gonna do, you know, I’m gonna put everything together, but it doesn’t work that way.
You know, if not, I’d be on the, I’d be on the PGA tour playing and getting, you know, making millions of dollars. But that’s, you know, that’s what everybody’s frustration is with it. The reason I made that analogy to spiritual life. You know, we’re always in search of that goal. We’re always in search of what, whatever sport you wanna get into is… you always wanna hit that goal and, and Christ wants us… and gives us that hope to be able to reach that goal.
