Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
I would rather be strong than weak! But truth be told, I have many places of weakness, in body, mind and soul. As a result, like St. Paul, at times I do not know how to pray for myself, let alone for others around me. Thanks be to God, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, the same spirit that moved within and through him, at Pentecost, to his followers for all time. When I invite the Holy Spirit to come into my places of weakness, “that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.” Then “All things can work together for good “, as the Spirit of the living God breathes truth and love into every sigh and situation. Come, Holy Spirit, help in my weakness.
The heavens are telling the glory of God. (Psalm 19:1)
Live in such a way that you bear outwardly as well as inwardly the image of Christ crucified, the model of all gentleness and mercy.
Saint Paul of the Cross
