The Christian Journey

It is a great delusion if we think the spiritual life will provide us with total peace accompanied by feelings of self satisfaction and that because we count ourselves amongst those who have faith, our life will know nothing but blessings and apparent tangible good.

No! The spiritual life, the Christian journey, is one of a constant battle. It is a battle between light and darkness, good and evil, and we are all called in some way to be Soldiers or Warrior Maidens for Christ and his kingdom.

God needs us. He needs us to reveal him to others. He needs us to give the witness of the choice for good and the choice for life.

God’s needful heart needs us to speak his words and to be warriors for himself and for Mary that others may gaze in the mirror and glimpse the Divine. What a responsibility!

Precisely because we are praying and struggling for souls to come to faith and light and precisely because we see communion and union of persons as a good, the evil one will try and divide and create chaos. He cannot abide any kind of harmony in music, deeds, or word.

So be prepared. Be vigilant. We all have a task to do. We all have a unique place in his plan of things, but it will involve challenge, battle and pain.

Oh! Little hearts HE IS WORTH IT ALL. Everything we suffer and endure, He is worth it all, this great God of ours, in whose arms, please God by his mercy, we shall all be soon.
