God’s sunglasses

“Only if we are able to turn to God, to pray to him, do we discover the deepest meaning of our life, and the daily routine is illumined by the light of the Risen One.”   Pope Benedict XVI, April 25th, 2011

Life takes on a different meaning when you are deeply united to Christ in prayer.  You see reality through his lens, through the sunglasses of God.  Suffering becomes an opportunity to grow in your love for Christ and for souls (offer it up!!)  You begin to notice the needs of others and learn to forget about yourself.   Temporal pain is endured with the hope of eternal happiness,  knowing that behind every Good Friday lies an Easter Sunday.  In short, Christ is at the center and everything is bearable with him at your side.
