“In thy sight are all they that afflict me; my heart hath expected reproach and misery. And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none.” Offertory verse, Mass of the Sacred Heart for First Friday, Ps. 68:21
These are the words of Our Savior during His Passion. Go to Him. There are much bigger things at stake. Eternal things. Things that need to get squared away in order to have any chance of being properly prepared for what’s coming. The creator of the universe loves you and desires your companionship. Think about that.
Get to Confession, and assist at Holy Mass as often as you can. Daily Mass, if at all possible. If the sacraments are available to you, and you choose not to avail yourself, imagine what it’s going to feel like if your Particular Judgment comes earlier than planned.
Your Guardian Angel is right along side you, and wants to help you through this.
Above all, pray unceasingly. We know we win in the end.
One thought on “First things first”
Yes. A singular grace for me tonight. I’ve been quite ill and didn’t think I would make it tonight to Mass. I layed down for 10 mins, told Jesus that I KNEW He wanted me there tonight, but I could do nothing without Him…almost instantly I was graced with feeling much better and able to go. And a great homily to boot entitled “Cheaters Never Win”. God is so Good.
