Clarification Day

If you follow the messages from Holy Love Ministry, then you will be familiar with “Jesus is here with his heart exposed.” I have to be honest. It took me a long while to get used to that phrase. I think the media has corrupted the word ‘expose’ as it does all things, and we…

It Is Never too Late to Live

  Don’t expect a grand miracle. The miracle is that you have hands to hold your rosary. The miracle is that you can recite the prayer straight from your memory, and the miracle is the peace that follows you throughout the day.   Life lived in a simple way glorifies God just as life lived…

Holy, My God, Hold me, Your Child

If you refuse medical treatment like me, then the best cure for panic attack is crying and sleeping. You literally cry and sleep your way out of the acute pain in your heart, the tightness around your chest, and the heaviness of your brain.

An Evening Prayer for Rescue

* * * Is there anything more sentimental than the late afternoon sun? The lonesome glow, lingering yet ever so slowly leaving, it does something to my heart. Tears gather for no reason, or for so many reasons, and I don’t know which is true. I can name a few that make me grieve, but…

Romance

  The girl with short hair leans her head on her husband’s shoulder. They are a married couple in their early thirties, probably around my age. When standing up, her height only reaches somewhere around her husband’s upper arm. I see his one arm so easily wrapped around his small wife’s shoulder. The girl is…

Lord of hosts under whom the world is in submission, Envelope the world by the ray of your Mercy.   Let your people dwell under the wings of your protection and lead us on an exodus. You are writing Exodus even now, in the lives of every person who belongs to you. Grant us freedom…

You Are a Suffering Surfer

  Don’t be scared– Don’t be afraid. You know you are not alone. You can ride it out– one wave after another, one hurricane after another, until the final tsunami comes, until the final wave comes to take you all the way to the shore.   Remember. You are a surfer. You are a suffering…

You Are the Christ
