Monica’s Praise Report 4/26/23

Praise be Jesus Christ ! Now and forever !  He is the Gate, the Way, the Truth.  He is all Loving, all Mercy, perfect Justice. His thoughts are not our thoughts, for He is constant and all Good. 

Thank You Lord for all thy benefits. Thank You Lord for all the trials and discipline, as well. Thank You for the communion of Saints and the Body of Christ!  

Lord, I am so sorry for my doubt, my distrust, and forgetfulness. I am so sorry for any lukewarmness and disobedience in myself and those in my family. Not only am I sorry because it hurts You, but I am sorry that it hurts Your body. 

Lately I have found myself having very full days of service and sacrifice. Divinely appointed and humanly carried out. 

Also some upsetting words were spoken aloud by one of my teenagers and the  lack of faith experienced. 

I was cut to the heart but was not shaken by what was said. Total strangers were able to witness to my child, and I know a seed was planted. I was also content with the fact that it could not, at that moment, come from me. 

I then prayed my chaplet and rosary with all this in my heart. My rosary beads broke as I was finishing my rosary. I now have beads everywhere in my vehicle. 

I was in shock. Not quite sure how I should feel about it all. I felt peace, but nothing else. Why was I not more upset?  Why was there no emotional response?

I called a faithful friend to pray with me and she did not answer. About five minutes later she called back saying that in the time between my missed call to her and her call back she received a prayer from a priest and a word. 

She prayed the prayer for me after I related to her all that had happened. 

Her word was that she felt, through the prayer of the priest and a strong sense from the Spirit, that all the graces flowing from Heaven can no longer be contained. There was a breaking free – a release of power. The graces were overflowing. Now that this child  has spoken aloud what is being  battled, all of Heaven knows how to fight for her. 

And as a member of that body, I will continue to deposit into that treasury of graces, not just for my child, but for whomever needs it. I know Mary will notice the needs and ask her Son to distribute them when, where, and how they see fit. I do not need to know the details of all that need the graces. That is a beautiful benefit of the Consecration to Jesus through Mary, isn’t it?

In this Easter season, hope abounds because Jesus is alive and is God Almighty. We lay down our burdens and lift up our hearts to the Risen Lord, who is our only Hope. 

Praise be Jesus Christ, now and forever.
