fortress of solitude

if there’s one thing i am grateful for in the midst of this solitude, it is this grace that i receive every time i kneel down to pray.

i noticed that for about a week now, praying has been so effortless that it comes automatically. it’s as easy as breathing air in and releasing it out.

my desolation led me to take notice of His loving consolation.

A comforting thought indeed, especially because I am aware that I am easily tempted to be so much preoccupied with matters that are fleeting, that rot, and relationships that are doomed to fail. Fr. Mols, would always give an emphasis to the fact that we are created for the infinite, for the eternal.

I still yearn to pray that everything will become over soon; that my desolation would go kaput. But if it would mean that I would have to let go of this consolation, in order for me feel better , let me be disturbed for the rest of my life.
