At the same time I am drawn to the Liturgy of the Mass, the Gospels, and the Tabernacle. I encourage a side-by-side "test taste" to see which satisfies that deep internal yearning we all experience. Amen.
A number of Saints professed this thought. Profanity, gossip, and sexual innuendo is fowl air our hearts breath in and can negatively effect our relationship with God. Be careful of the air you allow your heart to take in. Amen.
Is what we Christians on earth are. Jesus Christ has already won the war, but more casualties can be taken. We must draw ever so near and follow Jesus closely till the end. Then there will be an eternal celebration. Amen.
Are often unrealistic and have a way of taking us down a path we do not want to go. When we open our hearts to the Lord He will reveal Himself and knowledge to make us stronger disciples.

A life-long event. We will find ourselves in places, thinking, saying, and doing things we never could have imagined. We will experience great joy and pain. There will acceptance and resistance. The secret as it were is to trust in God and allow Him to ultimately work with and through you. Amen.
