CMO 30: 080121 I AM LOVED

  Saturday I was listening to a video presentation by Fr. Chris Alar, MIC (Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception) titled, Explaining the faith: The corporal works of mercy: Why they are necessary for salvation. I did not get an opportunity to finish listening to the presentation because I had to run some errands. I will watch the video in its entirety during the week. One point that Fr. Chris mentioned during his presentation stood out for me. It was when he said, "God loves you too much to let you stay that way?"  Fr. Alar was referring to living in a state of sin as I was prior to and sometimes after 2017. Why 2017? That is when I believe I was called by the Lord to return to Him through His Mother and His Church, both of which made absolute sense to me. I decided to be obedient to that invitation, as that is what is was, an invitation, temptations, falls, and struggles notwithstanding. Thank you, Jesus, for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Getting back to Fr. Alar&#
