I am destined to take a much needed "spring break ". We are so very busy at this time, including our oldest son's Wisdom Teeth surgery upcoming.....plus, we are dealing with computer problems....which I hope to have resolved soon.... I leave you for a time. My prayers and well wishes to all my friends who stop by.....I'll be back at a later date; until then, God bless you the remainder of this beneficial Lenten season.
We need light and clarity, both for ourselves and for those around us. This is our big responsibility. The Christian has been placed by God as a lamp to light up, for others the way towards God. We ought to educate ourselves to face the rush of people who are going to press upon us with a specific and urgent question: 'Well then, what must I do?' [Escriva, Furrow, 221] Children, relatives, colleagues, friends, they all look to our behaviour and we have the responsibility of leading them to God. And so that the blind person's guide is not himself also blind [Matt15:14], it is not enough to have second-hand knowledge or mere hearsay. To lead our friends and relatives to God, a vague and superficial knowledge of the route is not enough; we need to have walked it ourselves........."
