God Love You!
So this particular episode, it is by far one of my favorites. I played it at work, last week - always in the background. I'm so not a good listener, ask anyone who knows me. If anyone tries to describe something to me at work, like a problem or a situation, then I usually have to ask if they can write it down for me or really slow it down. I just can't focus.
Anyways, I've listened to this show a lot. Each time, it's like I pick up something new. It touches on so many different topics like, what does being holy mean? Does God love people more if they pray? I struggled with these questions and listening to her explanations spoke to my heart.
When bad things happen to you, it's so easy to believe that maybe it was because you didn't pray enough. I still struggle with this sometime, it's so easy to carry this guilt, let me tell you. It's not easy keeping your eyes on God, either, but it helps to know even the Apostles had trouble doing the same thing.
Mother Angelica has this way of just laying it out for you, in plain words. Telling me to keep praying, because it will keep you close to Jesus, to go to Our Lady, because she knows what real sorrow is and she kept her eyes on Jesus.
