Here are this week’s must-reads:

+ “In all my reading about suffering and how to live in spite of it, one thing I’ve seen mentioned a few times is the suggestion to replace the question of “why—why are you letting this happen, Lord?” with “where—where do you want me to be led through this?” Maybe the answer is “still here,” and who knows why, but I think about this idea of still being here in the present moment.

“The Lord must have had a reason for allowing Saint Peter to have those chains kept on for however long he did, and I’d like to believe He has some special purpose for our metaphorical chains too. We may not know it now or in five years or ever, but I’d like to try to live like that—like there is some special purpose for this time, here and now, because living like that actually does make the weight and burdens a little lighter. Where might the Lord be leading you through your “chains?” — read here

+ “Jesus, grant me the grace to remain interiorly at your feet with Mary while fulfilling the duties of my vocation like Martha.” — Hopes Garden in Bloom

+ We celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help last week. I love the image — and all the little details and their symbolism, it’s incredible. You can read a little bit about it here.

+ “Sacred art in the home brings peace, soothes the soul, points to the eternal, and acts as sacramentals in our daily life.” — The Ember Collective

+ “May today there be peace within you. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith..” — St. Teresa of Avila

+ “Who gives you the day will give you alos the things necessary for the day.” — St. Gregory of Nyssa

+ “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.” — here + “Peter and Paul remind us that, no matter our past sins or present challenges, God can bring astounding miracles and incredible work for the Kingdom.⁣ Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us — that we would fix our eyes not on ourselves but on the saving power of God.⁣” — Unleash the Gospel

+ “To reform. Every day a little. This has to be your constant task if you really want to become a saint.” — St. Josemaria Escriva

+ Servant of God Chiara Lubich wrote: “this heart is like a sun that shines on the whole world and on every human person. We must believe and trust in this heart, which will never delude us. It is a source of great hope for every human being; a lamp that shines even amidst the dark moments of life.” (shared in the June 2024 Magnificat)

+ “Elevate the work that we do at home – as deeply meaningful AND productive!! The home is the place where we build the unseen cathedral which is a healthy Holy happy family that extends into the next generation…” – Paige Rien
