DON'T BE AFRAID
Don't be afraid to make a move. I am only an intricate part, but needless to say a portion of God's plan.Upon contemplating in front of the Blessed Sacrament for a few years now, I received the strength to start carrying out His plan for me, or what I believe is His plan for me.We have to trust that the Holy Spirit is guiding us in the right direction.
I feel compelled to write in Hope that others will come forward and share their gifts that God has so graciously bestowed on us. We should be happy to proclaim our traditional beliefs because it is the truth and His word. Although we may feel we are alone sometimes we should try hard not to let this get us down. We need to focus on the grace of truly understanding this call towards traditionalism. We need to put forth positive movements to help bring the faithful to a closer union with God. This can be done through prayer and actions. If we sit idle we are not doing His will. This will make Jesus unhappy with us and we will be unhappy ourselves. When we do His will we will be rewarded and we should rejoice in this and trust that He is rejoicing with us. Don't be afraid to share what is in your hearts because it is not yours it comes from the Father.Help spread His love to others. Come forward and willingly carry your cross no matter how heavy it gets there is always someone to help you carry it .We need to do this for Him.
So turn away from the world. Turn off the television and the radio and any other distractions. Read a book on the saints and pray for the grace to be open to putting into practice what they endured. Try to put forth these examples into your daily living. God has a plan for each of us and we need to fight the good fight together for His name.
Take some time and spend it in front of the Blessed Sacrament even for just five minutes a day, whatever you may have to offer. Just be persistant on a daily basis. Ask Him--plead with Him to give you the graces for a closer union with Him.You may not FEEL anything,but be patient and you will see the graces that will flourish from this. I guarantee they will be fruitful benefits. Give it a chance. For what the world can offer will not make you happy and the so called comforts and pleasures don't measure up to the time spent well with our Savior. We should learn to adore him and feed on His word with the goal of reaching eternity in Heaven.Don't push the thought of eternity and Hell out of your mind. Focus on the reality of Hell the devil and sin. The reality can be scary but will keep you on track. Read and research. Ask questions, search for the truth. If writing this is a special grace then here is your proof. I received this message to share while contemplating in front of the Blessed Sacrament.

When encountering adversity, I think of St. Faustina. She endured many difficulties. The sisters in her order would gossip about her and often criticize her. Satan was even enraged with her because she was "stealing souls" from him. We are facing a similar situation. Many disagree with the traditional Catholic beliefs. Mass varies from parish to parish. We've omitted the prayer to St. Michael at the end of mass to protect our church from satan. Prayer and sacrifice is what our Lord told St. Faustina to do. That is what you are doing Ginny!
