Soul of Inner peace- Buena Prensa
Inner peace is a state of balance and personal harmony that we often miss in our life, due personal issues, work commitments, economics issues, the rapid pace at which we are forced to go, and rather put us in a state of stress and violence. We need to learn how to recover and maintain inner peace in the midst of the everyday realities and even those that seem to exceed our strength. Only then we can foster personal healthy and social wellness. Mother Maria Amada said frequently in her writings "a deep peace has flooded my soul" and not exactly when she was doing well , but even in the most difficult moments of her life when she suffered persecution, misunderstanding, illness, and spiritual desolation. The experience of the Servant of God can help us, if we try to live at least the following values, among many others who strengthened with deep peace her soul:
1. Trust and total abandonment in the hands of God, confident of His endless love.
2. Humbleness to the will of God, obeying what He asked her for.
3. Live in grace and union with God, through the prayer and the sacraments.
4. Simplicity and humility, accepting her own qualities and her limitations.
5. Serving generously to the neighbor, especially the most needy.
6. Happiness, perseverance and responsibility in the performance of her duties.
7. Sincere forgiveness to those who offended her and praying for her enemies.
Also let´s reflect some of her expressions, born of the experience of faith and union with God: "By chance it is not more satisfying to give than to receive? This has been the secret passed to me by my Beloved Teacher, to live in peace and joy." "My peace resides only in Him, in His will, patience is in my conscience, and this peace has been deeper the more I'm doomed."
Merciful Father, you have chosen your daughter Maria Amada, whom burned in the love of Jesus Christ, your Son, and full of zeal for the extension of the Kingdom of Love from his Heart, so her whole life cared about for those who suffer, especially for the poor and homeless. We ask You through her intercession, grant us the grace that we ask in faith ... (make your request). We thank you for all the gifts that you have given us and those who want to give us through him. Listen compassionate to our prayers and let us know your will, for Our Lady of Guadalupe and the merits of Christ our Lord. Amen. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You!
