I am really upset that my Year of Faith has turned out to be a year of unfulfilled expectations. I have allowed myself to wallow and not move forward. I am going to take a break. Perhaps blogging isn’t a good way for me to go. You see my blogging was supposed to reinforce my prayer life but my prayer life has gone south compared to what it was. I need to regroup. Until I do, this is my prayer from the Cardinal Newman Society:
Almighty God and Father, Who have revealed Yourself through Your Eternal Word, and have blessed Your Church with Pope Benedict XVI, our teacher in both faith and reason; receive our prayers of thanksgiving for his witness to the beauty of truth, for his example of hopefulness, for his humble service of Christ’s Bride. As he blessed our apostolate in his care for the Church’s teaching office, so now may he receive the benefit of our prayers. Grant him, in his time of retirement, the reward of study and prayer as he continues to seek, find, and love you in truth. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
