The world can use more hope, and as Pope Benedict XVI reminds us, that is exactly what the Advent season should bring to every one of us. This is a time where our mind, body, and soul should be renewed with hope that God is always with us, and will one day bring us home to His everlasting kingdom.
“Advent is the spiritual season of hope par excellence, and in this season the whole Church is called to be hope, for itself and for the world.” -Pope Benedict XVI

The question, “Who am I?” may not be an easy one to answer. Another difficult question may be, “Why has God put me here?” But when each one of us was born God had a very specific plan for us, and if we put our trust in God, there is no limit to what we can do. Saint Catherine of Siena knew this very well, and it’s with this knowledge that she advises us:
“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire!” -Saint Catherine of Siena

When Jesus appeared and spoke to St. Faustina one of the messages He gave to her to share with the world involved love and prayers. The message He shares illustrates how important it is to do something nice for someone, and to love each other…always.
“A single act of pure love pleases me more than a thousand imperfect prayers.”

Nobody said it was going to be easy, in fact Jesus warned us that it is actually quite hard to do the right things and follow Him. Today is a good opportunity to look at our own lives and be honest with ourselves whether we think we would fit through that narrow gate. If the answer is no, what can we do to transform our lives? None of us no how long we have on Earth, so we should not wait until it is convenient or easy, we must do all that we can, and we should start today!
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to eternal life. And those who find it are few.” Matthew 7:13-14

God has made us many promises, but nowhere in the Bible does He tell us that we will not face assault, evil, or any kind of persecution. Jesus, His Apostles, the Saints, and Christians all over the world have faced these kinds of trials, but even in the face of persecution and hatred, we must always remain as close and faithful to Him as possible. Trust in Him, and He will provide.
“Though an army encamp against me, my heart does not fear; Though war be waged against me, even then do I trust.” -Psalm 27″3

Holy Week gives us the opportunity to re-live the passion of Jesus. We can never understand how much He loves us, but we are called to understand and think about the suffering He endured for us here on Earth. (warning the video depicts images from the movie “The Passion of the Christ” and some are rather graphic).
