Our Calling: Total Surrender to God!

As we near the end of Lent this year, we want to perk our efforts in order to really receive the graces has for us this Holy Week. This is not a selfish thing but something practical if we are growing in humility. It only takes one set back to realize that the good we do for others is possible because we are acting on good graces that God shares with us. Like Jesus, we are to accomplish the Father’s will in us.

As I consider this for myself, I am blessed this year to have read one of the most powerful and impactful books that I have ever read, Priestly People by Richardo Zimbron Levy, M.Sp.S.. The book is available from the Sisters of the Cross in Modesto, CA. This resource is the best book in English that summarizes and then applies the Spirituality of the Cross that God brought to us through the life and writings of Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida.

One thing that jumped out at me with my first reading, among many things, were the words: “God does not ask us for complete perfection, but rather, for a total surrender to him.” Today I can go to work, come home, reach out to friends with the hope that I release control of my life and the moments to God who will make something beautiful.  Today as you go about your day, say a little offering to God…I give this moment to you, Lord, help me. ~ Mary

To contact the Sisters of the Cross of the Sacred Heart to purchase this book:  Sisters of the Cross of the Sacred Heart at 1320 Maze Blvd, Modesto, CA  95351, 1-209-526-3525.
