To our Amazing Parish,
Sometimes we forget that as human beings we have been masterfully designed by God. Sure, you can fumble your way through life and you will lean many features of the human being. But if you really want to understand exactly what God had in mind when he created you, if you really want to understand what you were designed for, you need to study the instruction manual. [i.e. the Bible, the Ten Commandments, the teachings of the Church, the Sacraments, and the Mass]
If you use an iPhone in ways it was not intended for, it will most likely break down and stop working. In the same way, if you live in ways counter to what God designed you for, over time you will break down.
You have been designed by God with a purpose, ignore how he has designed you, and you will be inviting every type of misery into your life. Embrace how God has designed you and you will experience unimaginable joy, even when things don’t go your way.
Part of God’s design is mission. You have been designed for mission, created for mission. You have been placed on this earth at this time to fulfill a specific mission. If you don't embrace and fulfill your mission, it will be left undone. Nobody else has been assigned that mission. Just you.
(Matthew Kelly, Decision Point)
God Bless you as you continue journeying!
