Trusting The Spouse Of Our Souls


Wedding

When trust is broken, as a wife, I come to understand that the LORD is in this Marriage Trinity, and it is He who is the Spouse of our souls, the Bridegroom who NEVER breaks the trust. Who does not stray. As my husband may through temptation, I adhere to the Lord even when my husband may stray, praying for his repentance! Praying for his return.

Such as it is the same, for the shepherds who stray.

I ponder Psalms, chapter 116

I kept faith, even when I said,

“I am greatly afflicted!”

I said in my alarm,

“All men are liars!”

How can I repay the LORD

for all the great good done for me?

I will raise the cup of salvation

and call on the name of the LORD.

I will pay my vows to the LORD

in the presence of all his people.

No Self Made Man


xjesusheartill2Alfred Delp: A Self-surrender at the Heart of the World

I had to re-blog this from Father Peter Nguyen on Alfred Delp. Please read it in full at the above link.

“In the Kingdom of God there is no self-made man. An open heart receives the thoughts of God. An open ear receives his guidance. Life either comes to grip with the great Heart or nothing else. One must be capable of genuine decision and devotion”

Sweet Christ


Sweet Christ, my King; Lord, God my Redeemer
For You so loved the world
at your command, You became the ultimate Gift
The sacrificial Lamb, slaughtered for mankind’s salvation
Giving yourself so sweetly, so freely without malice but in mercy
at Your own hand, from Your own hand, to Your own Hand for the hand of humanity
are alone, together in the blessed Trinity, I beg you please
receive all my works, prayers, love and suffering which are pleasing to you.
I unite my suffering and my entire life in exile to Yours.
Although my pains and sufferings in exile are but a speck of dust
on your sandals compared to Yours, my Sweet Christ
may the love I have for you ensure it never to be shaken off.
This lowly soul seeks only You, O Sweet Christ, in this world and eternity
to share in one love, one sacrifice one suffering and one glory
all yours, in the sweet name of the Most High Jesus Christ

Amen

Inspired at Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament this morning

The White Crayon


Ever think something so simple as the white crayon in a box of so many colors could inspire thoughts of God? Well, here goes.

So often, I have used the expression “I’m not the brightest crayon in the box”. I have been pondering exactly who is. How many times I have heard in my own life how people view the white crayon as “Worthless”. To see just how worthless the white crayon is, imagine life without the white crayon. How could dark images be made lighter without it? You see the white crayon adds brilliance and highlights to drawings. Making them pop rather then appearing flat. It adds depth and allows a focal point to be flooded with light. Without that light, the drawing becomes lost in darkness.

The same can and often has been said about faith in God. Far to often we place that “white crayon” of faith in a spot in the box, to where the other colors are more visible. Because the other colors are so much more appealing to the eye. We forget that the “other colors” although important, are not as valuable and distract us from the importance of faith in God.

The more one takes pleasure in lower things, the more he is separated from heavenly love.
–Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-590AD)

Do Not Be Afraid


“Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers that they must leave for Galilee; they will see me there.”

Ever ponder what it must have been like to SEE our LORD risen with the women and the apostles? Notice how it always takes them a few moments to pick up on “Who” they are seeing? The TRUE followers, the LOVES know their LORD. He opens their eyes to see Him because the EYES are the gateway to the SOUL. They know Him and He knows them. You can see it in the eyes. This is how I am able to “See” Him today. Its possessing a sense unlike any other. But it is not just a sensation that they can see Him. He is truly there.

“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me” John 10:14

EDIT TO ADD:

I just returned from this BEAUTIFUL Easter Monday Mass. A better way to put what I had stated above is in this way:

Every time our LORD fell on the road to Calvary, He fell in LOVE.

The way His “Sheep” know Him is like taking a page from “The Princess and the Pea”. She could not sleep, because something as small as a pea, distracted her. She didn’t know what it was, but knew it was there to keep her awake.

Thank you LORD Jesus Christ, for all the “flowers”
