Friends of the Rosary:

We are called to holiness. The Holy Trinity ardently wishes to receive our souls in Heaven so we enjoy eternal happiness. We, humans, are created so lovingly that we are given the freedom to choose.

God doesn’t interfere in our lives unless we ask for help through prayer. Then we receive grace and wisdom to dwell on Earth. We also receive the gift of faith, that we would need to constantly cultivate. Prayer and acts of charity are the tickets to safely navigate through the valley of tears we live in.

Like the Son of God and the Virgin Mary, we will bear multiple crosses, although less painful. To make things a little bit more challenging, doubts about God will accompany us. We might even think that the Father doesn’t love us enough and has even abandoned us. Jesus in the cross, before his resurrection, thought about it, as well.

At the end of this pathway full of sorrows and joys, we will face the final judgment. Life on Earth is short. Our best move is to cultivate faith, virtues, and love.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
St. Luke, Pray for Us!
