One Reason

“If you consult your heart in all honesty, you will know why there is only one reason why you are not even now a saint: you wholly do not want to be.”

Exhausted & Lost

ImageWhen we’re exhausted, our defenses are down. Physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We become run down from the build up of sin on our souls, and nothing can heal us but the consoling rest of the sacrament of confession. That favorite song won’t do. Quality time with that friend won’t help. Confession provides a revitalizing breath of fresh air when we hadn’t even noticed we were suffocating. Through the sacrament of confession we receive the healing touch of the Holy Spirit and we gain back our life; that same life we first received, pure and unblemished by the world, pouring into our lungs and expanding our chest. We are once again ourselves. Oh, to be free.

Put Aside All Anxiety

“The same Everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day of your life. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then, and put aside all anxious thoughts.” 

― St. Francis De Sales
