Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
True happiness can only be found in the Will of God. The only way to find out His Divine Will is through prayer, the Sacraments and prayerful meditation on the Sacred Scripture. You are not going to ever be truly happy unless you seek and do the Will of God. I have found that out too many times both in trying to do God's Will and in also the painful lessons of when I try to do my own will. "My thoughts are not your thoughts and My ways are not your ways" is the lesson God passes on to us through the Prophet Isaiah. The wisdom of the Proverbs remind us to "trust in the Lord with all of your heart lean on Him with your whole understanding acknowledge the Lord in all of your ways and He will make your paths strait". It comes down to trust and abandonment to Divine Providence. It comes to prayer daily and constantly and seeking to do the Holy Will of God. We don't have to understand what will happen tomorrow- let it take care of itself- today we trust in Jesus Christ- today we pray more. For in seeking and doing the Divine Will we will find peace- and peace will flow forth from within us like a river.
We need to pray and ask God to teach us to do His Will and that His Peace may reign in our hearts. We can not withstand the storms of time or the darkness approaching without an interior peace which only comes from Our Lord Jesus Christ through
the Sacraments, through prayer and through following His Will. One of the Fruits of the Holy Spirit as you know is peace and we need to do God's Will and pray to achieve that peace. Television, the internet, the world itself can not give you (or I) the peace which passes all understanding. If God's peace reigns within us then soul by soul through our witness and most importantly through God then the world can achieve peace. You want world peace- then seek to do God's Will individually today. Rend your hearts- turn them inside out through an examination of conscience, return to the Sacrament of Penance (Confession), receive Our Merciful Lord in the Holy Eucharist, pray, fast, pray and ask God to move your heart and incline your ear to His Will. Then peace shall reign within and you will know The One who is Mercy, Truth, Love, Justice and Life.
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!
