Overcoming Perfectionism and Finding Peace

JMJ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. “He willed to create great souls comparable to lilies and roses, but He has created smaller ones and these must be content to be daisies or violets destined to give joy to God’s glances when He looks down at His feet.” – St. Therese of Lisieux Fear of striving towards holiness because of the past we have lived – being discouraged by the thoughts and judgment of others as we grow in holiness. These are feelings all too commonly expressed to me by other souls God has called to join His Church later in life. In fact, these are concerns your humble author struggles with daily in her perpetual striving to grow in holiness and develop a closer relationship with Our Lord. In a fashion different than many previous letters I have written for this website I am going to speak rather plainly and frankly. God has not filled my soul with any poetics this week, and I believe this is because He wills for this message to be concise and straightforward. However, it is through simplicity of writing that a topic such as this ought to be addressed as it seeks to reach out to those perhaps unfamiliar with the flowery and poetic style all too common in spiritual writings. May God let my words reach those who are struggling the most in their efforts to grow closer to Him. Indeed, may ...

Overcoming Perfectionism and Finding Peace

Learning to Listen When God is Speaking

JMJ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen My Lord how often we selfishly waste the precious little time we ungrateful and faithless creatures allocate to prayer – time which we miserable beings often in our daily lives so longingly wish to have more of to give; that time which we all too often claim to be unable to find; and yet, my God, how readily we can find time to devote to ourselves. How quick we are to spend the hours with which You have so lovingly blessed us selfishly bustling about concerned with wordly affairs and busying ourselves with tedious tasks so we can afford to indulge our lowest and most depraved of passions fruitlessly. We spend our time as if it were our own and not, instead, the truly precious gift rightly belonging to You alone and merely bestowed to us so we may come to love You more, our most precious and Adorable Jesus. In prayer, a sacred time when we are to set aside our worthless endeavors to be with You – time when we ought to be listening intently for the faintest whisperings of the Holy Spirit – we insignificant yet prideful and sniveling creatures find ourselves speaking so loudly about those concerns we ought to have set aside that we would be unable to hear even the most deafening of cries calling us to You. We, Your faithful and loyal subjects, who desire so ... The post Learning to Listen When God is Speaking appeared first on Walking the Little Way.

The Importance of Avoiding Venial Sin

JMJ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. Oh, my sweet Jesus please help me as I compose this letter today writing about the small temptations and venial sins that are the ruin of little souls. Those deplorable sins that in their seeming insignificance slip past our minds. Those venial sins which we have, in our wretchedness, fallen into the habit of committing which such frequency that they have become no longer only temptation but routine to our weak and foolish minds. Those sins which cause You, Our Blessed Lord, so much pain on our behalf due to the ease and willingness by which we commit them. We who so often consider not that every sin which we commit pains Your most Sacred and Blessed Heart. How quickly, my God, we offend you. How much we too hurt our souls when we hurt You. When a member of the body aches, it is the head which genuinely experiences the pain. My God if we could be freed, I beg You my Lord through the intercession of Your Bles...
