Some simple thoughts from a housewife and a Grandma….
Anyone who is somewhat informed hears things in the news, out and abroad about our Holy Mother Church that can, truly, ruffle our feathers.
We listen to talk about annulments in the Church, liberal bishops and irreverent Masses….
We all know the kerfuffle that went on after the last Synod and we are awaiting…..maybe with anxiety….the results of the upcoming Synod, which is just around the corner.
The Apple Cart seems upset and it disturbs us. Our concern mounts.
Then we take time to actually listen to what God has to say to us at our beautiful Sunday Mass in the Collect for the day (this last 15th Sunday after Pentecost)…….
Let Thy continual pity, O Lord, cleanse and defend Thy Church: and because it cannot continue in safety without Thee, may it ever be governed by Thy goodness. Through Our Lord….
We must never, ever forget that God is in charge, and the gates of hell will NOT prevail!
We stay within the Ark of Peter, committed and strong, working towards bringing back the Church to its former glory. We pray and we hope, with confidence!
Our children will know their faith, they will love the Mass and they will carry on the torch!
And now it’s back to our laundry, homeschooling, cooking, dirty diapers, etc., offering each moment upwards, while letting God take care of His Church!
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Good reminder to carry on with our God-given duties. 🙂
It seems though it is good to be informed about various liberalisms or evils so that we can protect and guide ourselves and our offspring towards the truths of the faith and know how to discern what is for our demise – momentarily or/and eternally.
The trick is to not get wrapped up in the problems were it disturbs our peace and our family gets neglected. (I love the posts about maintaining this tranquility and peace.) 🙂 🙂
And today being the feast of the Holy Name of Mary, she would be a great one for helping peace! (Oh, and if you could spare a prayer for me today, I would be very grateful…..its my b-day….thank you!) 😀
Prayers for you today, dear Mary! Happy Birthday, may your day be filled with blessings! <3
