TSMSS: Shine




Yesterday during the homily at Daily Mass, Father said something that really made sense.  I don't remember word-for-word what he said, but it went something like this:  Being a Christian doesn't mean our lives are perfect.  It means having the faith we need to get through whatever adversities come our way.
That really hit home.  It seems like at the height of Lent, when I felt my faith getting stronger, our family went through something that tore my heart apart.  I can't imagine how much worse it would've been if I didn't have my faith to fall on during that time.

  8. Great song, and I hope the situation with your family has improved. Sometimes stuff HAPPENS, but you're right - your faith will help you through. What a blessing.

  9. I love how we have the same readings, but get totally different homilies. Some people imistakenly think that believing in Christ earns them a one-way ticket on Easy Street. But you only need to look at the Blessed Mother to know that is not so. Thanks for sharing. Love the song, too, BTW.
