Here are this week’s must-reads:

+ “We hold a lot of “should have beens” in our hearts, don’t we? All the prayers and plans, hopes and desires that should have been… Maybe for the rest of Lent, we can try to let go of those and hand them over to Him. Little by little. Maybe He wants to carry them with us. Maybe He wants us to hand them over entirely. Maybe He wants to lead us in a completely different direction. Not sure. But even offering up our “should have beens” can be a prayer. Probably a powerful one, I think.” // “More than holding onto thoughts of what “should” be, Jesus desires what the Father desires.” (Sr. Faustina Maria Pia) — read here

+ “We may not know what this week will hold, but we do know that God promises to be with us through every high and low we experience this week.” — Well Watered Women

+ “With God, there is no need for long speeches.” — St. Jane Frances de Chantal

+ “Purposely inserting goodness & beauty into the moments of our days became a primary goal, so that our living would reflect the reality of what we believed about God.” – Sally Clarkson

+ “Martha was trying to do something for Jesus. Mary was trying to do something with Jesus.” —Chad & Tori

+ “Before turning it to wine, Jesus told them to get the water… We do the trusting, He does the transforming.” — Iam Simkins

+ “Praying the Rosary makes me think of Lent. It’s so easy for your mind to wander. To consider what to make for dinner. Who you needed to text back. Your plans for the rest of the week. And every time these distractions come up, you just try again. You go back to the Mystery, you re-focus on the prayer. You return. Again and again. You wander, you return. It’s like a little moment of Lent that can strengthen your ability to return once you realize you drifted.

“Even now, return to me with your whole heart.”

Even now — when you’re distracted.
Even now — when you’re grieved.
Even now — when you’re tired.

He’s always inviting you back, lovingly. Into His heart and into His life.” — read here

+ “There’s no avoiding Calvary in any vocation.” — A Catholic Convo.

+ “The goal of marriage is not to think alike but to think together.” — Robert Dodds
