Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

as Children do..

"Believe me, unless you become like little children again, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven."
Matt 8: 23-26


"To become children we must renounce our pride and self-sufficiency, recognizing that we can do nothing by ourselves. We must realize that we need grace, and the help of God our Father to find our way and keep to it. To be little, you have to abandon yourself as children do, believe as children believe, beg as children beg."
St. Josemaria, Christ is Passing by

The hardest thing for myself to deal with our lost was how to explain to my oldest girl
this lost of ours?

Now do you say.. we will not see the face of your brother/sister..

So I wait and wait and I see I have to say something now..

"hum... Remember our baby angel, Pablo?....
He now has a brother or sister with him in heaven.."
I say holding back the tears...

She looks up with these big brown eyes..
and says..
" Jesus needs an angel.. He needs lots of angels.."

What faith! What trust!

She says as well..
"The baby was a girl and I think we should call her Marta..."

Please Lord..
Help me
to abandon myself as children do,
believe as children believe,
beg as children beg.
AMEN!
