Moments of Revelation

Recently,I admitted to one of my Confessors that I’m not always being charitable at work. I’m ashamed of myself. The Lord gave me a job, after several months of unemployment, and this is how I repay Him.

My Confessor said “Treat those who you struggle with, even those you dislike, as you would treat The Christ”

I do, that’s the problem. I’m no better than the crowd in front of Pilate.

Stay there, Cath.
Jesus looks at you with such love, such sorrow, such compassion.
He really does.
He's the Lord after all.
He knows. He really does.
And so does Holy Mary, His most wondrous Sorrowful Mother!

Boy, can I relate to this. Since I started wearing the Brown Scapular, it has not only brought me spiritual benefits but, with no intention of irreverence or disrespect meant, it's also acted as a spiritual bark collar. As soon as an untoward thought even crosses my mind at work, I remember what I'm wearing around my neck and I take a deep breath and move on. Some people have perfected button-pushing into an art form. Most of them seem to work where I do. Those are the folks I simply offer to Jesus and say "Please, show them the way to behave" to which the answer quickly comes: "No, YOU will show them how." It's amazing how much better other people are to bear when I learn to let go.
