the cloth

It is human nature to question if the paths we have taken in life, the choices we have made, the gifts we have shared are pleasing to God.

Does it come from the “Will of the Father?” Or the desire of our own making?

There is one way, I have found, to rest in God’s presence in these moments of discernment.

It is a simple & quiet Peace of Heart which allows me the assurance my God is speaking.

Is this an easy thing to discern?

No!

Trust me, my logic rethinks it often; yet He always leads me back to Peace.

It is there that I find rest, it is then that I am comforted, it is at last a trust that goes beyond knowing.

(Can there be any greater peace than that?)

Today I am re-blogging a post that reminds us of all the surprising ways in which our Father needs us to do, whatever He asks of us.  I pray we may find one another somewhere in the ‘Caravan of Followers’ heading into this Holy Week, with the Master.

“The Gem of Christ”

Saint of the Passion of Jesus

I met St. Gemma 8 years ago at an adoration chapel in Philadelphia, Pa.

Our family was in the city for a day to watch Army beat Navy!

(Unfortunately, this did not happen that year.)

I had gone out early in the morning to find a Church to pray…

for our opponent,

for our team;

(especially those who would be playing their final senior game,)

for the safety of all those who proudly serve our country

and for their loved ones who support them.

And yes, if it be God’s will for, “a “W” on our side of the scoreboard please!”  Continue reading “the holy hour”

Lent.

I love lent!

Probably because I am a “Passion Person.”
