Sometimes a thought comes to you through an quiet inspiration, other times it comes through a trusted person and sometimes it comes from multiple people, and avenues. What to do what it? Is it something I wish to delve into personally? Something to share in this medium?
I share this story theme will it help another avoid the mistakes I
made? Will it shine a light on someone who may be in a similar trap I
found myself in? Things to take to prayer, things to discern. I see
how it could be helpful for it shows how easily I was lead astray by an
evil, vile force and shows that only through the awesome love and power
of God I was saved.
this experience I have an unshakable faith that when it comes to
fighting overt evil God always (always!!) wins. Through this experience I
have no fear of the dark ones for I know I can call upon Mother Mary
and the Holy Trinity in belief and faith and they will fight for a child

Towards the Light I run,
Confused, I lose the path.
Towards the Light I stumble,
The closer Your perfume the more your Light burns.
Roads, paths, back alley-ways
Scar the trek ravaged while lost.
Found, the Moon directs the eyes
The injurious paths of past,
To grow the wheat must die..
To live the past must die,
To grow the sin must die.
Hope, my only salvation.
Light, my only yearned for guide.
Sure footed I stumble and fall.
Sure footed sins from past faced.
To grow I must fall,
To live I must die.

From Eucharistic Reflection (see website link below). A marvelous daily e-mail site, it has become the first thing I open when checking e-mail. Always beautiful pictures, reflective quotes, and a constant joy. :
"No traveling soul can worthily love its God, but when this soul
does everything it possibly can, and trusts in divine mercy, why
should Jesus reject it? Didn't He command us to love God
in accordance with our strength? When you have given and
consecrated everything to God, why do you fear?" - St Pio (1916)
DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY
‘I stand as a beggar before the mercy of God,
praying that He will heal all the infirmities of my soul’. St Bruno
St Faustina: "When I steeped myself in prayer, I was transported in spirit
to the Chapel, where I saw the Lord Jesus, exposed in the Monstrance. In place of the Monstrance I saw the glorious face of the Lord, and He said to me:
"What you see in reality, these souls see through faith. Oh, how pleasing to Me is their great faith! You see, although there appears to be no trace of life in Me, in reality it is present in its fullness in each and every Host. But for Me to be able to act upon the soul, the soul must have faith. O how pleasing to Me is living faith!"

POPE JOHN PAUL II
"Do not let that hope die! Stake your lives on it!
We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures;
we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our
real capacity to become the image of His Son."
Pope John Paul II
World Youth Day 2002, Toronto
Pope Blessed John Paul II, ora pro nobis!
