The Gift of a Blessing » Deeper in Prayer

St. Dominic was the first to teach meditative prayer in the form of what we now call the ROSARY. He was the first to teach this method and the first to see the benefits and power of this form of prayer.
During the 11th and 13th centuries, the heresy of Albigensianism was taking over France, with the thought that only spiritual was good and anything physical or material was evil. This thought led to the belief that our soul was good, however, it was housed in an evil body that people wanted to escape. This was not a teaching of Jesus Christ, and Father Dominic set out to preach the good news of our bodies being a beautiful and necessary vessel of God within. He went about preaching all over France. However he had very few followers and fewer that would listen and be converted away from Albigensianism. In fact, more and more were following the heresy teaching.

We Are Family!!!
I have to share what happened to me one morning! IT IS HUGE—it is a miracle from heaven. It reminded me of the love of my family and the love of my 4 sisters. It’s the authentic, fearless, messy, be-who-we-are-called-to-be, I-love-you-anyway, I-support-you, and I-see-you kind of love!
I had a really rough day, and all my emotions were triggered. I felt betrayal, doubt, fear, and my spiritual power being given away. But then I stood up, stood strong in my position of love, and walked away for a pause.

“Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.” -St. Francis of Assisi
St. Francis saw the world for what it was and chose to be grounded in faith, being a beacon of light for God to pour His love into, and then St. Francis had the burning desire to share His love with the world. St. Francis is known as the patron saint of animals and of ecology. He called all creatures brothers and sisters, and he called the sun, “brother sun,” and the moon, “sister moon.” He understood the inner workings and incredible divine interconnection between all and saw the love of God as the thread that held us together in fine and divine balance...

Christ loves us so much and He longs for a personal relationship with each one of us. All He asks is for our love in return. He is not interested in how many tasks we complete in a day, but rather how we loved today. I imagine Him standing beside us, reaching out His hand and asking us to walk this life with Him as our guide. I love the verse, “knock and the door will be open.” I imagine knocking on doors of heaven and being flooded with renewing love as they open. During Advent, let’s open the door to our hearts so wide that God’s love comes bursting through. You are His light in the world because He lives within you.
