Mercy, the Width of a Soul

May all mercy be received.
We cannot always forgive, but we can always show mercy. Mercy flows to us freely from the Heart of love. Mercy touches and heals all our brokenness. Mercy flows in where forgiveness has not manifested or been accepted and blesses, comforts, consoles, restores us all.
It is the height of spiritual attainment.
It is the depth of spiritual blessing.
It is the width of a person’s soul.
For to know God is to find Mercy and to receive God is to accept love into all your being and that enables your soul to shine and touch the oneness and wonder of God and in opening up in such a perfect way, to enter fully into the glory and goodness of Mercy that flows forever from the Trinity.
Receiving Mercy is the purest blessing.
It is all.
Amen

Led by Love

When we don’t know what to do, we turn to God in prayer and ask that He leads us in love. We don’t need to know exactly what to ask for, we just trust that God will bless us with what is right for us and place our hearts with Him, that we might feel His love.

No Words

Her pain is terrible today, her tears a fire, it is impossible to see the soft summer morning’s beauty, the gentle shadows, such is her agony. Another day lost. I have run out of words to pray.

You are Valuable

IN HONOUR OF ARCHBISHOP OSCAR ROMERO WHO IS TO BE MADE A SAINT TODAY.

Shot in the heart, by the USA backed military, during El Salvador's civil war, Oscar Romero's martyrdom in 1980 has had an enormous influence upon my life.

Here he is, very much echoing what we say on Stonebird about how precious you are and how your presence matters, even if you cannot do anything, move, communicate or think :

"The transcendence that the church preaches is not alienation; it is not going to heaven to think about eternal life and forget about the problems on earth. It’s a transcendence from the human heart. It is entering into the reality of a child, of the poor,of those wearing rags, of the sick, of a hovel,of a shack. It is going to share with them. And from the very heart of misery, of this situation, to transcend it, to elevate it, to promote it, and to say to them, “You aren’t trash. You aren’t marginalized.” It is to say exactly the opposite, “You are valuable.”
