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

Countdown ...20 days


We have 20 more days in our home. 
20 days before strangers come into my home and pack us up. (that is nice not having to do that)
20 days before we have to say good-bye to our dear neighbors that have been so good to us.

The greatest lesson that I have learned in these few months that have change our lives is:

Detachment
 in psychology, refers to "inability to connect" or "mental assertiveness"

however in eyes of a faithful catholic it means more like this:

Rather than in not having, true poverty consists in being detached, in voluntarily renouncing one’s dominion over things. That is why there are poor who are really rich. And vice-versa.
The Way, 632
 

I know that our sweet Lord is teaching us to detach ourselves from things, even relationship and even our children and attach ourselves to Him and Him alone..
