Peter Is Here


Relics-of-St_-Peter

For the past few days, a week even, my soul has been full of joy. Joy was missing for most of my life. The crushing darkness that tried to over take me, has indeed, fled. I have a funny feeling this is the reason…

“And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.”

I don’t expect anyone to believe me, but I seen one “reason” that has had me questioning my faith, my desire to serve our Lord and a LOT of other things, disappear very early this morning. My conversion back to our Lord, came directly from my being anchored in the Catholic Church through baptism. Although unknowingly I had left the Church through my actions, I never left the “faith”. Anyway, it’s not what has taken place in the “personal revelations” that matter, nor in the fact of what has taken place to me because of them. It’s where I am now, where it all has led me to be. Back home in the Catholic Church, in the “pasture where I belong” with the Good Shepherd.

Jesus Christ is my King, indeed.

“Jesus speaks only a word of forgiveness, not of condemnation; whenever anyone finds the courage to ask for this forgiveness, the Lord does not let such a petition go unheard. Jesus’ promise to the good thief gives us great hope: it tells us that God’s grace is always greater than the prayer which sought it. The Lord always grants more than what he has been asked: you ask him to remember you, and he brings you into his Kingdom! Let us ask the Lord to remember us, in the certainty that by his mercy we will be able to share his glory in paradise.” – Pope Francis

Year Of Faith Closing


YOF

For me, it has been a very remarkable Year of Faith. As one who spent most of her life afraid to let Him into my boat, I truly can see clearly the importance of responding to all the Love He has been offering me all of my life. Its like seeing the worst storm imaginable, finally passing over and the sun blaring through the breaking clouds. My Ship truly has come in.

I pray for all who heard and seen Him this year and responded to the Love He is offering us on a daily basis, for strength to continue. Just because the Year of Faith is ended, does not mean my work is complete. It’s just the beginning to put into good use the gifts that have come through and share them to give Him the glory and honor, not because it is required of me, but because I love Him.

With our Lord, everything is a constant new beginning, never ending.
