Mother Teresa of Calcutta: Pentecost Illumines the Night THESE STONE WALLS - May 11, 2016 Discouragement is the deep spiritual valley of our age. For Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the Holy Spirit's light came only at dawn in a long dark night of the soul. I grew up a few miles north of Boston in an area known locally as the North Shore. Well, it's called that in print anyway. In conversation, it comes out something like, "the Noath Shoah." I never knew that until I moved to another part of the country where people inexplicably pronounce the letter ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/dkEQfOUkEKg/

To perceive ...http://freethroughtruth.blogspot.com/2016/02/give-sight-to-blind.html
Squeezing Through the Crack THE CLOISTERED HEART - February 2, 2016 ... so I could have just a tiny taste of the spiritual life I once knew. Then the Holy Spirit brought the Cloistered Heart to me. The Cloistered Heart allowed me to squeeze through a tiny crack in that big brick wall. I long for the fullness of all of God's promises for those who love Him to the heights. And if that sounds presumptive, then so be it, because I know that it is meant for us all. Not just the Religious or the saints, but for all.....'

2016 RETREAT REFLECTION - "TO TAKE UP THE JOYFUL CALL TO MERCY" (Pope Francis) ALWAYS A JOY... - February 2, 2016 How time marches on...it seems like it is only a few years but this year, I would be thanking God for my 12th year in full-time ministry in Divine Retreat Centre. I can honestly say these have been years where I felt more joy in being part of the Divine-Potta ministry than all the achievements I had in my 16 years in the corporate world. It has been a life lesson in understanding the phrase - "Happiness is from the outside but joy comes from within." January is the month ...http://alwaysajoy.blogspot.com/2016/02/2016-retreat-reflection-to-take-up.html
