This truly describes my constant inner chapel filled with Prayer without ceasing with every beat of my heart and every breath that I take. Foremost that prayer is that I can die to self and embrace my cross and follow after Jesus in all that I do and say and give and take and cry and laugh and sing and listen and work and play and awake and asleep and each moment of each day.
My friend Scot Hahn shared this quote by Pope Benedict XVI today. It is such a good description of what we are called to, and I find that I am in such a low spot that I am truly ready to do some big work on myself. It is such great God timing to be back home just in time to begin my Lent. Thank you, Lord, for your wonderful timing. I am on my peaceful island here with Pat's mom in her home for the afternoon and evening... talk about peace filled and wonderful prayer time.
Jesus, I am so needing you to come and help me out of this hole I find myself in these days. I am in need of your loving forgiveness!
Yes, Lord, I do know of your constant Mercy towards me, and may I return that unconditional LOVE and forgiveness to those closest to me most especially those in my domestic Church/family. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
