Si Fractus Fortis

A conversation with a dear friend on Friday about the direction my life might take led to my re-dedicating myself to the path of sainthood.

On Saturday I attended Mass and confession and spent half-an-hour in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with the intention of gaining a plenary indulgence - to be applied wherever the Lord directed as most fitting. Sunday and today every step of the way I have concentrated on doing God’s will as I have understood it.

Already I can feel the sense of rush and urgency that has recently been filling my life dispersing. God has begun to re-impose order on my chaos - the difference is noticeable in only two days. What is most noticeable to me is a sense of spaciousness and freedom.

Quam magna multitudo dulcedinis tuæ, Domine,
quam abscondisti timentibus te;
perfecísti eis qui sperant in te in conspectu filiorum hominum!

O how great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord,
which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee!
Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee, in the sight of the sons of men. (Psalm 30: 20)
