Our Lady of Fatima
Christ seems to be speaking in riddles to the disciples. Now you see me, now you don't. They must have been really confused! We have the advantage of history and understand the message that is underscored by our Lady of Fatima. Christ was, is and is to come. One day, we will see him again!
One more thing: Ever get discouraged that you are fighting a losing battle? You know, the one where you try to raise healthy and holy kids in a world going to hell in a hand-basket? Take heart! Christ reminds us that we will mourn while the world rejoices, but our grieving will one day be turned into joy when we see him again! Hang in there mom; it will be worth the effort.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I can't wait to see you! Give me hope and peace while I wait here for you. In your name I pray. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for me. Amen.
