Here are this week’s must-reads:

+ “Christ asks for a home in your soul, where He can be at rest with you, where He can talk easily to you, where you and He, alone together, can laugh and be silent and be delighted with one another.” — Caryll Houselander

+ “Everything that happens now I try to respond in my head, “I’m coming, Lord.” I try to treat everything as if God is calling me. I see the house a mess, “I’m coming, Lord.” I have a fussy baby at my leg, “I’m coming, Lord.” I hear the baby crying for the eighth time in the middle of the night, “I’m coming, Lord.” It is my goal. Most of us will not die a bloody martyrdom for our faith, but we will be asked to die a dry martyrdom. Each day, one fuss at a time we can grow closer and closer to His heart. I want to be faithful in the small things. I hope at the end of my life He will say to me, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” — “My child, I love you”

+ Sustaining That Joyous Easter Feeling: “Father Clifford Hennings suggests that it may not be posible or even necessary to feel the same level of joy throughout the year that we experience during Eastertime.”

+ St. Thomas may have begun with doubt but he didn’t end there. 🙌🏻 St. Thomas, pray for us.

+ “St. Thomas’ doubt was not that of an atheist, it was that of someone with a protected heart who needed to be shown that he could trust again… Sometimes in our traumas and places of brokenness we can’t get to Jesus. We need Him to come to us.” — Dr. Bob Schuchts

+ “Life is full of trials, suffering and pain. But it is also is abundant in graces, blessings and joy. Jesus never promised we’d live lives without trials. But He did promise He’d help us through them if we let Him.” — Jonathan Roumie

+ “Suffering is not the end of the story with Jesus”

+ “May my life be a continual prayer, a long act of love.” – St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

+  “We are in the upper room with the disciples, those who had denied, betrayed, and abandoned their master. Jesus came and stood in their midst. When they saw him, their fear must have intensified; undoubtedly, he was back for revenge. Instead, he spoke the simple word “Shalom,” peace. He showed them his hands and his side, lest they forget what the world (and they) did to him, but he does not follow up with blame or retribution—only a word of mercy.” — Bishop Barron

+ “Jesus said to them, “Come, have breakfast.”

+ Lastly, here’s what’s featured in this week’s Catholic Wife, Catholic Life NewsletterI share these every Monday and they always include: two gluten-free recipes, a reflection & prayer based on Sunday’s Mass readings, and links to budget-friendly fashion & home decor.
