Getting Upset When Laid-Up

How easy it is to get upset when we find ourselves laid up, oh perhaps because of an illness. Frustration creeps in rather quickly. When you find yourself at the crossroads, you can choose to remain frustrated or ask Christ Jesus for the grace to travel the road of peace. When we open ourselves to this possibility, that there is a path to peace, then we will experience it in all its fullness. St. Padre Pio used to say often, “Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry”. By giving ourselves completely to Christ the road to peace will be right around the corner. Have a most blessed week.
Your little brother,
Hermits of St. Giles

About hermitsoftheholycross

The Hermits of the Holy Cross is a Contemplative Association for those who are permanently physically disabled and have become “home bound” to their local Church and are in need of continuous medical care. The Association of the Hermits of the Holy Cross is set-up in such a way that those who are ill and physically disabled can live out their monastic spirituality from their own home. We assist the Church and the world through our life of prayer and freely offering up our sufferings that stem from our disabilities. For the Hermits, our hermitage is within our heart and the Cross of Christ is life for us and for our world.
