I listened with my heart to the Abbot’s straightforward way of exposing the basic truth about how to trust God. I felt a relief at learning the lies we believe about our Lord. The book points out the myths and roadblocks we all create to hinder the path to a life well-lived. He has the reader go on a clear and honest pilgrimage to build a relationship with God, a relationship that makes a difference.

The Sin of Covetousness

The Garden of Eve narrative is one of my favorites. It gives insight into the genesis of humanity’s sin-caused problems. It seems to me that many of our current issues worldwide are due to the sin of covetousness. Since Eve coveted the fruit of the tree, that God forbade her to eat this sin has been with us. Admiring the fruit was allowed; all of God’s creation deserves admiration. Eve’s downfall was allowing herself to desire what did not belong to her, then stealing it and lying about it.

The Joy of the Lord

“The Joy of the Lord is Our Strength.” Over the years and during challenging times, I meditated on the phrase, “The joy of the Lord is your strength,” hoping to be able to learn to manufacture this joy. Being an independent, I-can-do-it sort of person, I believed that if I could learn how, I could master the secret of being joyful, and therefore, strong. This strength would give me the emotional, psychological, and spiritual strength to endure. I worked and worked but still felt like a failure. No amount of positive self-talk worked. Nehemiah 8:10 encourages us that the joy of the Lord will strengthen us to do what is right in His eyes. I prayed and meditated on this scripture, believing that God would show me my failure and the path toward holy joy.

The Fifteen Promises of Mary to Christians Who Recite the Rosary

It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the heart of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
The Blessed Virgin has always been seen in a relationship to a community. When we first meet her in Scripture, Mary’s community includes her Jewish family and relatives.
