"Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.”
-Pope Benedict XVI
Could it be true? Can life be new? Could it be all that I am is in You? Could it be this? Could it be bliss? Could it be all that I ever had missed?
Can it be You? Can it be You?
You’re representing the Catholic Ministry at a secular university Intramural Basketball game, and all humility goes out the window when you win in double overtime by one point and rush the court as if you have won the NBA Finals…
…but it was our first win in over 4 years lol
I wrote this almost two years ago and we hadn’t won another game until this past Monday. So that was really exciting.
"Those who carry God in their hearts bear heaven with them wherever they go."
Enjoy where you’re at. Be grateful for what you have.
"When we were hungry, we were fed, yet we neglect the needy. Though we have a God who is generous and lacks nothing, we have become grudging and unsociable towards the poor. Our sheep give birth to many lambs yet there are more people who go about naked than there are shorn sheep. Our storehouses groan with plenty, yet we have no mercy on those who groan with want. For this reason we are threatened with righteous judgement. This is why God does not open his hand: because we have closed up our hearts towards our brothers and sisters. This is why the fields are arid: because love has dried up"
"For whoever has the ability to remedy the suffering of others, but chooses rather to withhold aid out of selfish motives, may properly be judged the equivalent of a murderer."
Lord, that I may trust You.
"It is very helpful to confess with a certain regularity. It is true our sins are always the same; but we clean our homes, our rooms, at least once a week even if the dirt is always the same, in order to live in cleanliness, in order to start again. Otherwise, the dirt might not be seen, but it builds up."
