Troubled And Abandoned

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Tuesday of the Fourteenth Week of Ordinary Time

Troubled and Abandoned

If all is true and authentic
and if it is the Will of God, why must I live with such dark
and troubled torments? (Elizabeth) (Spring 1971)

Today’s Readings: At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them
because they were troubled and abandoned,
like sheep without a shepherd. (Matthew 9)

Prayer Meditation- Troubled and abandoned. Lord, if I could think of two words many of us felt and are feeling still in these times they would be it. But Lord, You have never abandoned us and forsaken us- in fact Your Sacred Heart has been moved to pity for not only those of us who felt abandoned but also for those who are away from You during these tumultuous times- the unbelievers and those who do not yet know Your Love. Because the truth is the Fountain of Mercy is flowing more than ever in these times of Divine Mercy. That the graces of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary- the greatest grace since the Word Became Flesh is flowing to us as well and calling us and our loved ones into the Ark. And we can sit here feeling sorry for ourselves like Lot’s wife and lament what may not every return in the same way or we can keep walking forward with our hand to the plow without looking back (Luke 9:62) because we trust in You even in and especially in the dark.
