O Jesus –
Where are you?
I am in awe at how you have been purifying me
You alone are my love, Yet earth keeps calling and luring me
No matter where I turn for security
You block me
and I know your will, will be beyond my deepest desires and hopes
Forgive me for my reluctance
And you do forgive me
You, O Beloved, understand my awkward steps.
Like Saint Ignatius of Loyola said:
Take Beloved, receive,
All I have and possess
Give me only your love and your grace
That will be enough
Cherish your beloved son
Fill my heart with your Sacred Blood
Hi everyone. It has been a journey of ups and downs and many crosses.
I am entering the third week of classes at Loyola for my Certificate of Advanced Studies in Pastoral Counseling. This is a great program. I am just a bit rusty in this school thing, especially since all the modern technology. My teachers couldn’t be more professional, demanding and passionate about their field.
Please pray for me for I am still in the midst of the deepest part of my dark night of the soul.
I know that Jesus will never allow me more than I can handle. However, I certainly don’t believe I can handle this much.
Have a blessed week!
Love, joy, peace,
