We claim to have trust in God. We believe that God will do it right for us, but we are under pressure to speak and act immediately. How could we get ourselves to hear His voice and let it enter our hardened soul? How can we get ourselves to believe that He can make Himself heard and direct His love through us? We should direct our effort towards helping others to accept the will of God freely, unreservedly and wholeheartedly, so they would look back at their lives and say to themselves in confidence, That is God's will. It is my cross, and I must bear it. To offer someone superficial comfort or inspire futile hopes would be irresponsible. We must face reality, and it may be different from our wishes. It is cruel to say to someone who is terminally ill and has no chances of recovery, "You are going to get well." Instead, to talk to the person about their eternal destination is to express deep and genuine love, not a shallow or superficial one.
All the things that happen to us a providential, including the sick in our midst and our illnesses. When we come to God, we find the way to everlasting life. For the Lord says, "I am the way..." (John 14: 6). By humbling ourselves and recognising the will of God in all our life events, we put ourselves back on track. When we resist, argue, bicker, escape or hide away from God, we subject ourselves to needless torments that embitter our hearts and deprive us of the possibility to meet God and enter his Divine Kingdom of everlasting love.
Our congratulations go to all our women. We wish them to grow in their faith and success in their hard work to keep the peace in their families.
The people who do not know God will live different lives, which may even be quite exciting and filled with all sorts of pleasures. Their life journeys, however, will have the same endpoint – being buried in a grave and falling into oblivion.
We are all treading along our life path; it is a journey that we will have to follow through to the end, every footstep of it. We should be careful not to take the wrong turn as we are progressing since every false step can cost us very dearly.
Let us be inspired. May we see the light in the darkness and defeat evil with our good works and intentions. Let us smile more often and always find something good to say to one another.
Just one person corrupted by sin may corrupt many other people and things around him. There is no paradise on this earth, but its landscapes and scenery still give us comfort. They are creations of our Lord, and they make visible to us His Divine…
More likely than not, we will not see our situation in the same way as the Prodigal Son did. Perhaps our path towards holiness should start with an exercise in introspection.
The birth of the living God returned to humanity the sense of His closeness. God acted through the people who had kept within themselves the ability to live by their faith. People like the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.
God's grace is bestowed on us at church by virtue of God's love for every human being whom He created in His image; His grace has a powerful impact on our lives - it acts like a fire that eats away all the things that are superfluous, passing…
