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 blogs....one day I hope to meet her in person:-)
