Grace and peace to you in our Lord Jesus Christ.
When I first began to send these messages out as a weekly mailout, I ended each mailout with a short excerpt that could more easily be pondered through the day. I have decided to post a collection of these short messages of love so that you may be encouraged in love, and trust ever more in his nearness. Believe that you are the “beloved little one” he is speaking to and your faith, hope, love, and joy will grow.
Prayers our Lord taught me…
Jesus, unravel my weakness and have Your Mother weave for me a seamless garment that is You, that I might wear You for the world.
That you exist fills me with wonder; that you are all-good fills me with joy; that you are all-powerful fills me with comfort; that I am yours fills me with contrition.
Lord, I accept everything that comes from you and reject everything that comes from the defeated enemy.
My Jesus, I love you, I trust you, I surrender myself joyfully to your loving, perfect will for me and mine.
Your Body in my body; Your Blood in my veins; Your Love in my heart.
I am yours, You are mine, we are one.
My heart IN Your tabernacle; my heart IS Your tabernacle.
