missing my Love

I miss Jesus! I haven't been able to go to Mass since Monday, and it makes me very sad. At one church, daily Mass wasn't avaliable this week, and at the church I normally go to, the priest has been gone and the nuns have been doing their inclusive language liturgy of the hours and such. I know that Jesus is always with me in my soul, but it is such a tremendous joy to be able to receive Him in the Eucharist! How fortunate we are to be offered daily Mass in this country! I know that there are places in the world where they are lucky if they can get a priest to make the long journey to their church once a week or even once a month. Daily, their souls must ache a thousand times more for Jesus than mine does right now. How very spoiled we are by God's grace!

I have been reading St. Faustina's Diary and have been humbled by her extravagant love of Jesus. She really loved Jesus and, faithful to His will, has helped others know His mercy and love for many many years.

St. Faustina, be my companion and teach me to love Jesus like you do.

Jesus I trust in You!

Hi Kat,

I saw your blog and I am really impressed...I think that having a passion for God and Jesus is the best thing ever. You know, I am not Catholic...I grew up in a Evangelical/Baptist family but at the end of the day we are all Christians...coz I can see that the same thing that moves you (God) moves me too...

Any way...Keep well, have a merry Christmas and God Bless you!
