Stay with the Lord
I’ve been absent from the Network for a couple of months, and I apologize for not sharing reflections with you throughout Lent and Easter. For many reasons, these have been weeks filled with preoccupations that kept me from what is a pleasant task.
I suppose this merely reflects the busyness that fills so many people’s lives. It also reflects a choice of priorities. When you’re busy, what do you let go and what do you stay with? The most important thing, for all of us, is to stay with the Lord. No matter how busy we are, some time for prayer is a daily necessity. During May, some time in prayer with the Blessed Virgin Mary will help keep things straight with her divine Son.
