Thank you Simon

Last year I felt my cross got to heavy and my mind too cloudy to think. My chest felt tight to the point I couldn't breath. My fast paced life was halted, my thoughts left in blank. I couldn't take one more step and it seemed all I did was cry. I was too proud to ask for help, too insecure , too afraid. I buried myself in despair, in anxiety... it almost felt like hell. And our Savior Jesus Christ, He still found me there.

He reminded me of His passion , of the way of His cross. Of His Divine Mercy and His Everlasting Love. And He sent you, my Simon of Cirene to help me carry my cross. You became His hands and His feet, His voice, His compassion, His healing touch. And my cross became less heavy and my sorrow full of love.

I learned about the power of co-redemption, of uniting my suffering to His for the sake of others. I learned about counting my blessings and finding miracles all over. I learned about His Divine Providence and finding joy in my life and I learned it through the Christ in YOU guiding me with His light.

Today as He blesses me with one more year of life, I wish for nothing more than to serve Him, become His feet and His hands. Become one of His servants just like you did, just like you are.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for responding to His call and bringing peace, joy and healing into mine.
