'Tube Tuesday - Fathers of Mercy ALL OR NOTHING
I was just responding, commenting and confessing my lenten challenges to a blog friend saying...
I find it hard to pray as I know I should. My husband's saintly faith can be hard to see in comparison to my own weaker faith. Every day I just try. I surrender like MUCH brighter minds of generations and generations have done for the truths of our Catholic faith.
I go to confession often for the graces I know I need and I go to Mass on Sundays knowing that many saints experienced dryness...a dark night of the soul, but kept moving forward.
The honeymoon of my reversion is over. But I cannot give up on my "marriage" to my faith. I love it and know I should love it better...the way I am teaching my children to love it. That too keeps me tethered, thank God for homeschooling. I've often said it saves me and God knows that it is the path to my hopeful sanctification.
And I do sometimes feel like when I make an effort to say read something spiritual or pray my daily rosary, I come out of a fog in those moments. There is a battle being waged. Somewhere deep down, inside, I know I can not let the other side have me.
And then I stumble upon a video like this. Thank you, God. God bless the Fathers of Mercy.
The video, the Fathers, they remind me. They too lift the fog.
