Speaking of: Trusting in God’s Providence

A letter from Mother Luisita OCDS

“For greater things you were born.

God will provide for all of our needs.   Let us trust that we will receive all from Him who loves us so much and is always watching over us!

As you try to see all things as coming from the hand of God, adore His designs.   I would like to see you have more trust in Divine Providence.   Otherwise, you will be suffering many disappointments and your projects will meet with failure.   Trust, my child, only in God.   Everything human is changeable and the one who is for you today will be against you tomorrow.   You see how good our God is!   We should have more confidence in Him every day and have recourse to prayer, not permitting anything to discourage us or make us sad.   He has given me so much confidence in His Divine Will that I leave everything in His hands and I am at peace.

My beloved child, let us praise God in everything because all that happens is for our own good.   Try to fulfil your duties the best you can and for God alone and always remain happy and serene in all the tribulations of life.   As for me, I have placed all in the hands of God and I have been successful.   We have to learn to detach ourselves a little, trust in God alone and do God’s holy will with joy.

How beautiful it is to be in the Hands of God, searching His Divine Gaze in readiness to do whatever He wishes.”

“Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not let your hearts be troubled.
You have trust in God, trust also in me.”

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
