A note to you from a Poor Clare Colettine, TMD, Wales/UK
Dear Little hearts,
We all know that worry is useless, we all know it is fruitless, and yet coming to the acceptance and belief of that reality is a long, hard journey.
Presented with certain circumstances we are fearful, uncertain, and our inordinate imagination will present us with all kinds of mental pictures, of things that might, or could happen, which take our peace away.
Worry can be debilitating and exhausting leading nowhere, it is good to look back on our life and see how many times we have worried ourselves sick over something that in the final analysis, never became a reality!!!
Little by little we do learn.
Much better simply to throw ourselves into the arms of our Heavenly Father, the God who loves us, and will to trust and trust and trust. It is not easy but practise is a good thing and we will grow with every little surrender. Do not be robbed of your joy by being preoccupied with worry and worldly concerns, your Father knows your needs, he is with you and loves you, let it go…. and know peace.
We have many friends, much loved in America, please pray for the Bay State, for the 670 men and women with pending deployment, pray please for their families and loved ones. Ask Padre Pio to intercede for them all… In his lifetime many American soldiers visited Padre Pio, he was a priest for all.
“From the Heart of A Priest”
Thoughts of Brother Pio- (Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina).
Don’t worry about tomorrow because the very same Heavenly Father who takes care of you today will have the same thought tomorrow and always. . . What does a child in the arms of such a Father have to fear? Be as children, who hardly ever think about their future as they have someone to think for them. They are sufficiently strong just by being with their father.
