Show us your Mercy, Lord

From the Liturgy of the Hours, Morning Prayer....

Show us your mercy, Lord; our misery is known to us. May no evil desires prevail over us, for your glory and love dwell in our hearts.

Love as God Loves

As a Christian, as a Catholic, as a Carmelite....we are called to love as God loves. While there is a part of me, that very human part that understands the jubilation at the death of Osama Bin Laden....we must understand that God doesn't love me or you more than he loves him. In fact, on the very day of Divine Mercy I can only hope that Osama Bin Laden prayed, asked forgiveness and received the mercy that I have faith that God will give each one of us if we truly and humbly ask. Love as I have loved you.......praying that God increases my love and your love today.

Divine Mercy Sunday

I have been away from my blog for a very long time for various reasons. Today I'd like to share a post from someone who has been such an inspiration to me (though she most likely does not know it:-). I see myself in her writings at times and as is God's plan, she encourages me to continue, to move forward, to listen, and to allow our Lord's peace and mercy comfort my soul.

One of my favorite people and day I hope to meet her in person:-)

A Prayer for Priests


Jesus, meek and humble of heart,
give all priests Thy spirit of humility;
Jesus, poor and worn out for souls,
give all priests Thy spirit of zeal;
Jesus, full of patience and mercy for sinners,
give all priests Thy spirit of compassion;
Jesus, victim for the sins of the world,
give all priests Thy spirit of sacrifice;
Jesus, lover of the little and the poor,
give all priests Thy spirit of charity.
Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us;
and obtain for us numerous and holy
priests and religious.

The Gospel of Matthew

At our Carmelite meeting last month the Commentary on Sacred Scripture was mentioned...I purchased The Gospel of Matthew since many of our upcoming Sunday readings will be from Matthew....what a wonderful resource! I highly recommend it! It's even available on the Kindle!

Lord Jesus, our affluence is making us less human, our entertainment has become a drug, a source of alienation, and our society’s incessant, tedious message is an invitation to die of selfishness.

- Pope Benedict XVI (during the 4th Station of the Cross in 2006)
