Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

I do not seek my own will

But the will of him who sent me.

Thus says the Lord in today’s Gospel (John 5:17-30).

As Christians, we too should have this as our motto and as the touchstone for our decisions.

Am I really just seeking my own will? Am I just trying to satisfy my selfish needs? Am I just making it easier for myself?

Or am I truly seeking the will of God? Am I focused on what is truly good and not just what feels good? Am I taking the way of grace?

Fiat voluntas Dei.
