My Dearest One, You were made for such a time as this (Esther 4:14). I never makes mistakes. Instead, I saw a need and created you. I placed you here in THIS moment, this era for a purpose (1 Peter 2:9). You have a gift my child. Virtues and talents I have bestowed upon you to use for my glory (1 Peter 4:10). How will you use them?

Raise your hand if you are a disciple of Jesus... Okay put your hand down, that's weird. But do ask yourself, "Am I a disciple of Jesus?" If you answered yes I want to take you on a journey of thought I recently experienced in a homily at Mass.
Why do I feel sad? Why do I hurt? Where is this dissatisfaction with life burning in my soul coming from? For the past few months, questions like these have been running through my head. I've been struggling to understand why I've felt empty and forgotten.
