Holy Father Patrick, thank you for your help!


« on: May 15, 2006, 10:53:10 PM »

Well, here I am, ready to graduate from Holy Cross this Saturday with an M. Div., and therefore many people are starting to ask me just what my next step will be, and why I haven't embarked onto the steps that they think are 'pretty clear and obvious' for me.

So, I ask for prayers from everyone so that I can

-fully give my heart over to whatever the Lord has in store for me since my future seems somewhat vague right now; as well as

-by some miracle, sell my home that is located in the county with one of the highest bankruptcy rates in the USA, so that I can get going to whatever the next stage of my life is.

Thanks!

Chris,
Congratulations on finishing your degree!!  What a wonderful and scary thing it is to move on to another stage in your life.  Prayers for you to discern God's will for you and the selling of your home.

Blessings,   Juliana

Chris,

The good Lord enlighten your heart, guide your steps, and reveal to you His will for you.  And if it is, by His grace, the "obvious choice", and you proceed to the blessed mystery of the priesthood, remember us when you pray before the holy altar.

"Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.  Deliver me, O Lord, for my enemies; In you I take shelter, Teach me to do your will, for You are my God" (Psalm 142*:8-10)  *Translation of the Seventy

It's like the headlights on a car driving down an unlit country road at night, isn't it? God only seems to light the way for the next few yards of the journey- just enough so you don't hit anything!
May His Will be done in you.
