Do not look upon Him as a high and mighty lord who desires
to speak only to great ones–and then, only of great things.
Our God delights in stooping down to converse with us,
and He rejoices when we make known to Him our most trivial
Such is His love and care for you that He seems to have no one
else but you of whom to think.

Have you seen it??
Season 2 of The Chosen is out.
Well, episode 1,2 and 3 thus far…
Episode 2 was great.
We meet Nathaniel.
A soul after my own heart.
One who cried out to God and heard nothing back in response…
not until he met Jesus face to face…
I want that face to face — I want to see, to be told and to know, He knows…
but that’s a topic for another day.
In Episode 2 we watched as the current disciples, aka followers,
bickered and jockeyed
for position and did not hold back on their doubts and even dislikes
of the fellow followers.
Oh how real it is…
Future saints acting like the rest of us…
There is hope for us after all!
Do check it out…
I so want that one on one encounter.
One day, it shall come…
A French Catholic writer of a century ago,
Léon Bloy, frequently wrote this sentence.
It is one of the most profound sentences I have ever read:
‘There is only one tragedy, in the end: not to have been a saint.’
That is the meaning of life. The meaning of life is to be a saint. Nothing less.
