I don’t know about you, but I often forget how trustworthy our God is. It’s not an intentional choice that I forget this truth. It’s something that just… happens. I do this in both good times and in bad. Our God, however, is bigger than my forgetfulness and weakness. He’s also incredibly gentle.
Recently, I was reminded of these things when I was in the chapel praying. I was having a hard day, and I found a paper in my Bible; it was folded up. I didn’t remember what it was, so I opened it and found a copy of the “Litany of Trust” written by Sister Faustina Maria Pia, S.V. (Sister of Life). It moved my heart because I was reminded of the fierce love and gentle compassion our Lord has for us.
Attached to this short post is a recording I made of the Litany of Trust. You can find a print version here. Please take a moment to listen to it, to read it, to let it sink in. Slow down for four minutes and invite the Holy Spirit into your heart. Listen to the recording or read over the prayer a few times. Open your ears to hear words or phrases that stick out to you. I am certain that the Lord wants to use this prayer in your life in ways unknown to you or me right now.
That’s all I have for now; catch you on the flippity-flop, my friends.
Know of my prayers for y’all.
St. Thérèse of Lisieux and Pope St. John Paul the Great, pray for us!
