This reflection took me a long time to recognize and get to this point to accept the concept and thought of obedience and surrender in weakness to God’s Divine Love – His Almighty Power. Honestly, its taken four years about, so may I boost in my weakness to share in His strength. May this writing strengthen your trust in Him, so that He and Our Lady may triumph in hearts.
St. Scholastica feast day – Febuary 10th (UPDATED & EDITED 2/10)
For a Catholic we can not believe in failure of not achieving our wants, as this goes against our belief that all is in the hands of God.
We can not fear failure, only fear Not hearing His Word and keeping it.
Did not Christ Our Lord and King look defeated on the Cross and seen as a failure in being the Messiah by His death, for they did not understand His words of Him fulifulling the Divine Plan.
How much are our “failures” led to redemption and newness of life for others to believe in the Divine Plan and Hand of God.
We only fail in believing we can trust in ourselves, like the demons rejecting God and using the power given for themselves, yet we must trust and rely on the Lord in reminding ourselves of the Precious Blood shed for us and how He sees us to do such an act of Love.
This must be our faith in which we trust to Live for Him by the graces given, not reject them in pride, so that we fulifull what is written for our lives to reach Heaven by giving wtiness to His mercy and power over sin and death.
May we keep His commandments trusting in His grace to live just lives in honor of His Sacrifice. +
Christ is Victorious, Viva Cristo Rey!

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
And he said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee: for power is made perfect in infirmity. Gladly therefore will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
For which cause I please myself in my infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ. For when I am weak, then am I powerful.
2 Corinthians 13:4-5
For although he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him: but we shall live with him by the power of God towards you.
Try your own selves if you be in the faith: prove ye yourselves. Know you not your own selves, that Christ Jesus is in you, unless perhaps you be reprobates?
