Friends of the Rosary:
We try to find answers on Earth but we fail. The Devil wants to discourage us and separate us from the love of Jesus and Mary.
The Christian life is based on accepting the cross and offering our suffering to purify ourselves and repair the offenses of others to God. After the struggle in this valley of tears will come to the glory of the Resurrection.
My holy wife Maria Blanca, who died on October 28, said to me during her last days that we needed to learn to see the world through the lens of the faith.
In yesterday’s reading (Rom 14:7-12), St. Paul said: “None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord.”
We certainly need a lot of wisdom to understand that we don’t live for ourselves but for others. Yesterday, I talked to one of the chaplains of La Paz Hospital, where Maria Blanca died, and he said: “When we, the priests, were visiting your wife, we were feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit in that ICU room.”
Jesus, I Trust In You!
Holy Souls in Purgatory, Pray For Us!
