Make your inner struggles a path to deepen your unity with God and your maturity as a human and spiritual being.
In your deepest difficulties, may you not seek to fulfill your emptiness with that which is even emptier, which are the things of the world.
Search for relief for the pain, healing for your fears, answers to your inner questions, fulfillment for your emptiness, always in God. Search for your Creator in silence, prayer, singing, breathing, serving, and in life itself.
Find the Celestial Father in those who suffer, in those most in need, in those you have by your side, your brothers and sisters on the path, your companions.
Find the Celestial Father in nature, in the air that you breathe, every day, in silence, in the mystery which lies within you.
Find the Celestial Father in the strength that comes to you from within to make decisions to not remain in childishness, to not fall into temptation, to not make more mistakes and to change.
Find the Celestial Father in the answer of love that you can feel, even for a second, in the drop of water that falls from the sky into the desert of your heart, and which may not quench your thirst, but rather gives you hope.
Thus, child, make every test a gift, an opportunity to find God and to grow.
Pray and serve. Discover that by serving in the simplest things you also find fulfillment, because it is not about undertaking great missions, but stepping out of yourself to love, and may love cleanse your eyes and make you perceive life in a different way.
Pray and make your life a prayer. Thus you will find peace.
You have my blessing for this.
