Adjust your sails. Allow your Faith and trust in God to kick in…turn on the selflessness and turn off the self-absorption. Lean into Christ and ask Him to man the helm!!
“It is to the Cross that the Christian is challenged to follow his Master: no path of redemption can make a detour around it.” Hans Urs Von Balthasar

“With prayer, one can go on cheerfully and even happily. Without prayer, how grim the journey!” Dorothy Day
*With our Sacramental life being temporarily put on hold, I encourage all of you to make a prayer corner somewhere in your house. Read Scripture and good spiritual books, pray the rosary, speak to Jesus and Mary from the heart, follow Mass on line…and take advantage of your home being, in the words of St. John Paul II, a “Domestic Church”!

“Remember that it is not feeling of guilt that constitutes sin but the consent to sin. Only the free will is capable of good or evil. But when the will sighs under the trial of the tempter and does not will what is presented to it, there is not only no fault but there is virtue.” St. Padre Pio
