Holding on to your pain? Here's the key to letting it go.
"This book will be an invaluable asset for those who need to forgive and be forgiven. Marge had courageously shared the story of her painful childhood experiences in order to bring others an awareness of a path for healing. Seeking the assistance of the Blessed Mother's guidance in prayer, Mary affirms all her children as they unite their experiences in a deepening relationship with her Son."~Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki, Archdiocese of Milwaukee

With her gaping wounds once again bleeding, the Church needs us to stay strong, fervent, and prayerful. She is the institution of Christ himself – it’s not the institution that has caused the problems, it’s the frail, imperfect human beings within her who fell prey to the evil one.
To understand Mary’s request, we must first understand the nature of genuine humility. Humility isn’t the refusal to acknowledge anything good about ourselves or the playing down of our gifts and qualities. That, in fact, is a form of pride.
The funny thing is, the limits always end up testing me instead of me testing them. Thankfully, Jesus comes to my rescue and saves me from myself. He keeps my power from surging and burning down the house of my soul. When he snaps off my power, I’m forced to turn to him to reinstate THE power that can only come through him – grace.
Until that moment of desperation, I had never given serious thought to adoring Jesus in my heart. Of course, I pray to him and tell him that I love him. Definitely, I petition him when I’m in need. But the idea of sitting quietly and focusing only on his presence within me and nothing else was new to me.
