Some simple thoughts from a housewife and a Grandma….

Anyone who is somewhat informed hears things in the news, out and abroad about our Holy Mother Church that can, truly, ruffle our feathers.

We listen to talk about annulments in the Church, liberal bishops and irreverent Masses….

We all know the kerfuffle that went on after the last Synod and we are awaiting…..maybe with anxiety….the results of the upcoming Synod, which is just around the corner.

The Apple Cart seems upset and it disturbs us. Our concern mounts.

Then we take time to actually listen to what God has to say to us at our beautiful Sunday Mass in the Collect for the day (this last 15th Sunday after Pentecost)…….

Let Thy continual pity, O Lord, cleanse and defend Thy Church: and because it cannot continue in safety without Thee, may it ever be governed by Thy goodness. Through Our Lord….

We must never, ever forget that God is in charge, and the gates of hell will NOT prevail!

We stay within the Ark of Peter, committed and strong, working towards bringing back the Church to its former glory. We pray and we hope, with confidence!

Our children will know their faith, they will love the Mass and they will carry on the torch!

And now it’s back to our laundry, homeschooling, cooking, dirty diapers, etc., offering each moment upwards, while letting God take care of His Church!

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.”
stay calm
