When Life Seems Unjust, Seek Justice

Image
I don’t know about you, but I think there is a lot of injustices occurring these days. Of the many concerns impacting our society, we must seek justice regarding: AbortionGovernment corruptionRacial profilingUnchecked prejudices against the vulnerableDestruction of environmental protectionsDisregard for the rule of law I’m sure that you could add many line items to this list. The onslaught of these affronts against justice can seem overwhelming for anyone. Therefore, what can we do about it? How can any one of us seek justice in an unjust society? How I Seek Justice It’s just little old me. I’m just one person. Yet, I can have some impact, and you can as well. Perhaps you might want to join me. I seek justice, and by that, I mean God’s Justice, by reciting the Divine Mercy Chapletdaily. This is a powerful prayer asking for God’s mercy and forgiveness (for all the injustices caused by man). With my daily intention, I seek the revelation of God’s truth and justice, and that, we, as a soc…

These past few months have been a roller coaster in my faith journey. I began experiencing the spiritual dryness that countless saints and elders have warned me about. I wanted to worship but I couldn't. I wanted to pray but I didn't. I felt so disappointed with myself. Friends think I m too religious and I think I m too unfaithful (to God).

No Matter How You Hurt- God Is Not a Drug

Lately, I've had a lot going on in my head. For those who remember, in my last blog post, I was stressed and overwhelmed. I have good news for you that I've been resolving things. When I first published that post, I wanted to take it down. It seemed too personal. Yet, when I received comments on Reddit that people really related to what I was going through and that it helped them, it was worth it.  I thought I was doing too much, pushing too hard. I even thought I was on the verge of hypomania. I saw my psychiatrist yesterday and he said I'm doing better than he's ever seen me. He said the last thing I need to do is worry about how I'm doing. But, growth hurts sometimes. It's tough.  Last week, I wrote about trying to learn how to stop myself from driving myself crazy. The odd message I felt God wanted to give me is that I didn't need to stop His love. What I felt Him say confused me. It made no sense and wasn't the answer I was looking for. But, now, …
