God’s Love and Mercy is as vast and deep as the sea; limitless.

Meditation

We are put on this earth to know God, to serve Him, and to love Him. In the midst of our struggles even when friends do not understand your suffering nor are by your side, Jesus is the one by your side with our Blessed Mother guiding you and loving you. One thing is to preach and give advice from a distance; it’s quite another to be physically present as you radiate the love of Jesus. We are the hands and feet of Jesus so let us not kid ourselves or make excuses. God sees the heart of man and in Him is ALL TRUTH.

Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket—safe, dark, motionless, airless—it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.

C.S. Lewis, “The Four Loves” (via lifeinpoetry)

(via thelightgiver)

Almighty ever-living God, whose Son was pleased to be welcomed in Saint Martha’s house as a guest, grant, we pray, that through her intercession, serving Christ faithfully in our brothers and sisters, we may merit to be received by you in the halls of heaven. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The cross should be the center of our life; for by the Holy Cross of Jesus the world was redeemed.
