Why is it that we feel confused and weary? As if we are in the desert and unable to pray? What is going on? What do we have to do?
Even priests, consecrated brothers, the people of faith also experience this type of feeling. The best thing to do is to pray the rosary every day, read the Holy Scriptures, read books about life of the Saints, visit the Blessed Sacrament to meditate and contemplate on Jesus – Saint Augustine said: “… we cannot eat the flesh without first adoring it.” What he meant by this is the consecrated Host which is the body of Christ.
We are living in a very busy society and we need to exercise silence to purge the bad thoughts inside our head so we could clear our mind.
Attend Mass daily to receive the Holy Eucharist which is the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ as nourishment of our body and souls.
It is fitting to have a general confession this Lent in order to cleanse ourselves and we focus more on Jesus.
Meditate on the Passion of the Christ how He suffers for our redemption. Pray the Devine Mercy, every 3 p.m., for the reparation of souls in purgatory.
Satan is unable to read our minds … it is only God who has to power to know everything and what our needs are.
Christ is the center of our lives and no one can take that away from us, unless we choose to be separated from him, as promised by him … he will never leave as orphan because the Spirit of God is upon us and sustain us until we come home with Him.
Here is the prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi …
“Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon; where there is
Doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light; and where there
Is sadness, joy
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
Seek to be consoled as to console; to be
Understood as to understand; to be loved
as to love. For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
