Something to Chew On

Back from retreat! Whew. I survived my fourth Miles Christi silent retreat of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius! Kind of long for a T-shirt, isn't it? If you've never done one, what are you waiting for...It will change your life (or it least it should - that is the whole point of it!).

A pearl of wisdom from one of the priests... God has a plan set for you, and He will not change His mind. It is up to you whether or not you are going to cooperate with His plan. If you do, you can gain graces from the cross He has chosen to send you. If you don't cooperate, you lose those graces but still get the cross anyhow.

Just some food for thought as we progress through Lent.

Thanks for the prayers. Keep them coming for our "Seven Last Words of Christ" performance. The first one is Friday, March 19th and as one would expect, we are besieged with many problems, conflicts and annoyances. It's gonna be a GREAT performance :)

  1. This is truly a wonderful pearl of wisdom - thank you for posting it! I want to daily choose the cross (and accompanying grace!)
