How Do You Stay In God's Divine Will?

My Dear People,

How Do You Overcome Difficulty?

I do not know of any family who is not faced with a particular challenge or difficulty these days. It is a sign of the times. Like the Holy Family, fervent and regular prayer is the ONLY answer. Had not Our Lady and Saint Joseph been obedient to the angel's command to leave for Egypt in the middle of the night, tragedy would have overtaken them.

Remaining in the Divine Will of God the Father is extremely important. How does this happen? Daily, we must surrender our personal way to God's way for us. A simple Morning Offering is a great way to begin your day. Start by acknowledging God as your Father in Heaven. Praise and bless Him for all that you will encounter that day. Ask the Father to lead and guide all of your tasks, decisions, and actions. Cover yourself in the Mantle of the Blessed Mother, and open your heart to Hers. This a a sure way to stay close to God, and His plan for you. Make a New Year's resolution to stay in the Divine Will. You will be glad that you did. Many blessings upon you and your family in the New Year.

Like the Holy Family, may our hearts always be focused upon Our Lord Jesus Christ every moment of our day.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark
