To serve God faithfully is to surrender everyday with conviction and love; living as if yesterday's graces never were and accepting that our works if not persistent are empty. It is to continually open our hearts offering everything to God by emptying ourselves so that we may be filled with the outpouring of love that He unconditionally gives. It is in this way that we are enabled to live as He intended.
It is a great work, requiring perseverance and courage. The graces of yesterday are gifts to us; allowing the hand of the Lord to touch us and show us the irreplaceable joy that belongs in Him alone...leading us to share this joy in service through love with others.
We must wake everyday renewing our vow to follow and to serve- to be so hidden in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May each morning and each moment of our lives be an offering of love; trusting that this journey, though difficult is not unaided. We must only be open and say Yes "Let it be done". (Amen) C.C.
