Good morning, I would like to share that I am a member of the Order of Discalced Carmelites Secular. I must admit I have not been perfect in this calling, it has not been an easy journey, it has come with many crosses, yet the call has brought forth so many spiritual fruits like the Apostolate of Hannah’s Tears and many more, somehow, I feel in my heart sitting before the Tabernacle that I was to share this with you. I must say how I am so weak without Christ. I was able to see just how weak as the Holy Spirit literally lifted me with not much time to get ready, to be at Mass this morning to find today being the feast of our beautiful Carmelite saint and martyr, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. I have to share this because in my weakness and unawareness the Lord made me aware of the days goodness and HIS presence in my life. Our Lord has also shown me while visiting the chapel after Holy Mass, finding myself praying the Liturgy and today’s scripture reading being the same reading that the Holy Spirit gave this ministry many years ago:
2 Corinthians 1:3-5
May this scripture reading lift you up in the present moment and know that you are loved. I am not the only one God is calling to be near to HIM, Our Trinitarian God is calling you too. Sit with HIM for a while and just be near to HIM. He will speak to you in your present need and HE will comfort you in your afflictions and bring you consolation.
Please pray for me and forgive me for any ramblings.
God bless you
