The End that Led to the Beginning

Six years ago from this holy day of Good Friday, when I was fifteen, I was inspired to take my Faith seriously and obtain every answer for every question I had. Oftentimes when we doubt our Faith, it isn't so much we can't find the answers, but we do not want answers for our questions. We are so convinced that even though on this day Our Blessed Lord went through so many tortures, dragged a cross through the streets as He was laughed to scorn, that He doesn't understand our problems and our desperation. We assume He doesn't know what it's like to have nothing, to be in a position where there seems to be no hope. We strain ourselves to the point of losing faith in life and continue going down the path of destruction. We forget who we are, and Who made us.

This holy Friday, if you happen to stumble upon these words on my humble blog, remember one thing. He loves you. He loves you so intensely that He waits in Churches for days, weeks, even years, so that one day you can enter into that Church to make a visit to Him. He waits in the confessional, waits in the Holy Eucharist, even used to wait in the gardens He would play in as a child, so that one day He could grow up and die for us. Maybe life is harsh, maybe it seems like everything is crashing down, but remember His sacred eyes are continuously resting on you, waiting for you to run into His gentle arms to comfort you in your needs.

Therefore on this sacred day, regain your fire for the Faith. The Faith isn't there as a sort of distraction or burden in our lives. It's a portal to the truth of Providence, and a way for us to live peaceful and happy lives. When Our Lord was hanging on the cross, He didn't complain like we do in our trials. He simply hung in the silence, waiting for the day He would rise up and show the world that life does get better.

Listen in the peaceful silence. He waits for you with love. Have hope, the Resurrection is coming.

  1. I don’t see how any one can make it in the world without God. He’s the only reason I’m still standing, because if there’s no one there for you, God always is. He will never turn you away or laugh at you. The best Friend that anyone could have!
