I marvel at the depth of Your love for me - Your infinite Patience.

Lord, no matter how hard I try, I will never be able, on this earth, to fully understand Who You are and how undeserving I am to have been created in Your image.

We ask you, humbly: don't scroll away.

Why would You humble Yourself to take on human flesh and to die for a sinner such as myself? - Because You love me and offer me an opportunity for eternal life. 

There is much that has happened in my life that I still do not understand. Though at times I have become so despondent (over what I now realize were mere trifles, toothpicks) that I begged You to end my life, I "know": that everything that has happened in my life was a part of Your great plan.

Every second of despair was designed to bring me closer to You. Every scream of pain and hopelessness was a step toward being transformed into You. Everything I have experienced or will experience in this life is intended to assure I can spend eternity in Your Presence.

I marvel at the depth of Your love for me - Your infinite Patience.

St. Catherine of Siena tells us: the more we come to know ourselves, the more we will come to know You. She did not say that this journey of discovery would be easy or painless.

So, Lord, when I cannot understand what is going on in my life, when I feel spiritually that I am dying, let me recall this Truth: You will never "allow a negative unless it leads to a positive."

Whether I understand Your purpose or not, I must accept whatever happens in my life as necessary for my salvation and for the salvation of the souls I love.

With Your grace then Lord: I will silence my worry, adopt a spiritual perspective and cease to ask why, because I understand, I truly understand, that all will be well!

ALL WILL BE WELL for those who place their love and trust in You.


My blog where I promote zeal for the salvation of souls, awe and amazement for the Holy Eucharist and Eucharistic Adoration, and fidelity to the Truths of our Catholic Faith.
