Based on the title you would think so different of what this letter would be about, yet in this and many letters to come I pray that in sharing my reflections you can see the spiritual roots of life always aimed towards God. Nowadays so many times I see people looking down for answer, hence into their iphones and media, rather then looking up to the heavens and the wisdom from the Lord. Is it a coincidence that when many look at their phones there heads are always aimed downward, rather then those that pray look towards the heavens or forward. This has nothing to do with what I wrote today, but hope it serves as an introduction to the way we should look at what information we are taking in. That all should be aimed towards the Heavenly home we hope to reach. I hope in sharing these letters and reflections they might be the spiritual food to led you closer to the Lord and His saving grace. May Our Lady seat of Wisdom bless you and these reflections in this faith battle for souls.
December 18, 2020 – Reflection
In the mornings I sometimes see this black and white bird which I truly enjoy watching. I asked myself why do I favor this bird? This bird is covered in black with a white bottom. The black covers himself as like death and white underneath his top half as if life shines within. It reminded me of the desire to constantly die to self and be covered in the virtue of self denial, this is the reason many priest wear black cassocks to represent a death to self, and reminded me of the breaking of the will so that I may reflect closer to the interior life with the Lord so to purfiy my soul to truly live with Him. Our lives seem to be the medicine against the fall. We think so much on the importance of the material world, yet forget the importance of the eternity in Heaven and the path of renouncing of self in every moment being more important to gain the grace to walk the way of the Cross, which is the key to Heaven.
Pax et bonum.Mary keep you. Please pray for me.
