When this happens to me...and none of the already mentioned things work, I must make haste and NOT wast a single more second of my suffering and unIte my little bit of suffering to our Blessed Lord's Holy Cross.

it takes work and practice to do this. If you need more help with HOW to do it let me know, as it did take me a long time to learn it, but now know that I MUST do it as it is it is a gift from God to suffer in this way .... And is truly redemptive. theheart

God bless you,

Hello Richard!!! well your post made me think of all the nights and long period of time, spirituals droughts that Mother Theresa went through. You are not the only one! We just knew at the end of her life of all the trials and tribulations she went through! It means that all of us can feel at some times this. & What really impressed me is how faithful she continued being faithful to God, loving Him, serving Him. This is an inspiring fact. A real life, close in time that encourages me to do the same.

God promises:

"Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him." (James 1:12)

I think after a low point then we can appreciate everything more. Hope is a big thing for Catholics.

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.(Romans 12:12)

Also, the good thing is that it is Friday! At the end of the week many things pile up faint . So I hope you find the time to rest tons this weekend.

May Mary have you in her arms tonight! cookie cookie cookie hug rosary theheart Praying

Richard, (My older brother's name by the way.) Please feel important because I am attending to you rather than to the hours of electronic notes that I am behind in my work life. As a disclaimer, I am not as a devout Catholic as most on this site appear to be, but it does sound like you are struggling with some existential issues. Let me know if you would like to chat privately.

Actually, Genie, not much of all that applies to me ... I had wonderful parents but they passed away many years ago ... I have one older brother but he doesn't live that close by and we are very different in personality ...So, not much family left now ...

So sorry to hear Richard... my heart ache since i am helpless to fill the void in your heart.. the only thing i can do will light a candle for you ... take care of yourself... God has great plans for you ... i have seen God do wonderful things to so many and know he will do the same for you....what a beautiful/breath taking church....

Share this... one of my parishioners whom i deeply care for was claimed dead four times... and the doctors as well as our priest comforted his wife saying that he is gone... my deacon was saying the rosary, when he was ready to say the third decade he woke up and greeted the deacon who was shocked... God and the Blessed Mother in their wisdom gave my friend a new life...he is now hanging on the wall of the ambulance office with the paramedics who saved him... he has many relics of the saints that he brings when he does adoration...when i see him he lights so many around him and my life...if you ever come to boston let me know and will intro him to you...and take you to parish fav restaurant in the north end.... Praying hug theheart rosary rose rose rose

Richard,
just remember that you are never alone. God is always with you waiting for your call. You are made in the likeness of god. You are very special to him. We are praying for you. May god be with you, bless you and strengthen you always. Peace be with you. Everyone, let's say one Hail Mary for Richard as soon as you are done reading this.

Good Morning Richard,

It's a beautiful bright sunshiny day out there today. I hope you are feeling more positive... And if you don't have an animal companion, I suggest that you go to the SPCA and get a furry buddy. You both would benefit!
