Sometimes, the St. Faustina Diary just gets me through the hard times, I’m not kidding. Here is quote from there that seems so timely to what’s going on in society today, and I thought I’d share it with you in case it might give you some peace today.
“…If a soul loves God sincerely and is intimately united with Him, then, even though such a soul may be living in the midst of difficult external circumstances, nothing can disturb its interior life. In the midst of corruption, it can remain pure and unsullied because the great love of God gives it strength for battle, and God also protects it in a special way.” -Diary of St. Faustina, 1094
COVID-19 has affected so much – the people we see, where we go, what events we can attend, what stores we can shop from, etc. Whatever it is, our lives have been turned upside down for the last two months. You might be thinking during this time, “What can I do? What can I control? What can I turn to for peace and guidance?” Well, if, in the midst of all of this, you’re loving God and are united with him, God will give you strength, and God will protect you. “Nothing can disturb [your] interior life.”
Yes, there are external difficulties going on and hardships you’re going to face, but take comfort in the fact that God will give you strength, and God will protect you in a special way. Hopefully this can give you a little internal peace today.
