All That I Have Written Is Straw. . .

Meanderings of a Catholic Devout

“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.  If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” Jn. 14:1-3

I keep repeating this constantly in my head these days because my faith is being tested tremendously at the moment as one center of my universe is being “replaced” by another. I try several times a day to lay my sadness, anger, and anxiety at the foot of the cross. But I can’t help being a bit bitter when I ask of God, “How many times in my life must I lose everyone and everything?” Mother Mary, pray for me, because I know you can relate.

Why do we suffer? So that we can better appreciate mercy. So that change may come about…

Prayers sorely needed. Because I can’t find hope in places I’d expect to find it. There’s a fault line in the center of my heart.
