Listening to God’s voice requires me to invite Him along in all the small tasks of my day. After all, He doesn’t go where He isn’t wanted.
Catholic Spiritual Tradition
St. Pio popularized a wonderful devotional prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He used to pray this novena every day for those who asked his intercession.
There is a radical joy in unfulfillment. Because, paradoxically, as the Lord Jesus’ burning touch fills us with greater longing, it leads the heart to expand with an emptiness that brings expectant peace.
Mary is a beacon of peace in troubled times because, through her intercession, she directs us into a deeper relationship with her son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Praying the Rosary is a means of doing just that.
You can’t hope to bear fruit when you don’t care for the tree, so how can you hope to live the best life you can without having God by your side?
