  1. I agree that one of the greatest gifts of Catholic Christianity is the use of rote prayers to use when when you just don’t know what to pray for, trusting that God’s will is more than we could ever ask for. I learned to pull out my rosary as a kid whenever I was afraid, like during a loud thunderstorm, or whenever I felt the world was out of control. As an adult, I know I have no control over the world. I don’t pull my rosary out very often anymore, but I always know where it is, just is case!

  2. Wow, what a beautiful post. I had a “fall to my knees” moment a couple years back and leaning on faith and my church held me together and brought me back stronger than before. ❤

    • Thank you Ania, I will look for the film. I had the privilege of visiting the Divine Mercy Basilica in Krakow a few years ago and it was quite the emotional experience. As I emerged from the original church in tears, a sister in habit enveloped me in a big hug, declaring “you need this!”

  5. Julie-this post really touched my heart…I too have had moments in my life when I was brought to my knees. The strength of my faith is continually tested and it is nice to know an army of others are traveling this journey with me. Thank you for this Monday reminder during Holy Week that God is the One truly in control. 😀

  6. This is such a great reminder. All too often we get caught up in the day-to-day and think we are in control. If we only stepped back a few steps we would see the true picture…God is in control.
