My take on that spontaneously is: but I do good sometimes, and I even compliment others when they do good. Oh, Rose Mae, how far you are from full faith!
Francis had preceded the above statement with a reference to something
had said: “No one can say ‘Jesus is Lord’ except in the Holy Spirit.” What is this mystery that only God is good and that any good we see in creation comes from God? Saint Paul
Is it like a little kid who is learning for the first time to hit a ball with a bat?
The little kid’s father holds the bat with the little kid and when the ball comes near, the father (with the little kid holding on) swings the bat and hits the ball. I dare say that the little kid thinks that he was the one who made the ball go!
It seems that God tolerates our misconceptions that we are the ones doing good. I would guess that God would prefer an openness on our part to give credit where credit is due. Our union with God is there but we are still like little kids.
