And Sweet is the Breaking Within Me

One of the graces of Catholic blogging is discovering others of like mind and heart. A woman I've been blessed to meet in this way will be guest-posting here next time. I'm letting you know this in advance, because I don't think you'll want to miss this one!

Please join us on Monday to hear from our friend Trish.

Here is a sample from that post..... 

"How I became a heart-monastic is a mystery, even to me. It was nothing I did, nothing I planned, nothing I foresaw happening. I just know that one day something 'snapped' within me and I fell so low that only God could reach down and lift me up. And where He touched me now burns. Flames on His altar, consuming all that would sever the embrace of our souls. I am broken... and sweet is the breaking within me. I am hidden... and how lovely is my enclosure...." (Trish)

  1. Beautiful sample! Looking forward to reading it!

    1. Thanks, Mary; I am so enthused about the full post that I might not be able to wait until the promised "Monday." After all, in other parts of the world it's Monday already! So I think I'll put it on in a bit, and let it be there for the finding whenever anyone stumbles upon it.

      And oh, I hope a lot of people do!!! It has a wonderful analogy, and I think deserves a wide audience.
