"To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible." St. Thomas Aquinas

When times get tough....remember

Just a quick little tidbit I found inspirational to me.

All of us have those days when we wake up and we just simply do not want to put our feet on the floor.  We are tired, feeling defeated, discouraged and maybe at times wondering, "Is God really there?" 

I have been reading a book entitled, The Lamb's Supper, written by Scott Hahn.  This statement, while it may seem obvious, really struck me, and I have been clinging to it this week--something,that in union with Christ, we can strive to put into action.  Maybe it will encourage you also.

"...we are fighting spiritual forces:  immense, depraved, malevolent forces.  If we had to fight them alone, we'd be trounced.  But here's good news:  there is a way we can hope to overcome.  The solution has to match the problem, spiritual force for spirtual force, immense beauty for immense ugliness, holiness for depravity, love for malevolence..."
