In the Desert

Ok, I've not been posting in awhile, I know. Partly it is due to my not having anything of value to say. During this Lent for many reasons I have been in what I call the "desert of the soul". I have no virtue, no fortitude, nothing to impart which is worth reading. I'm praying this will pass after Easter, so then I plan to return to regular posting.

During times of trail for my soul, I find my only consolation, verily my only hope for my own salvation lies in the wearing of my scapular. With every shred of my will, I place my hope in the mercy of God, through the prayers of Mary in the wearing of her scapluar. Amen+

so I am wondering are you still praying the Hours of our sorrowfull mother from the Servants of Mary manuel? God let's you wander in the desert to see if one is truly faithful by their thirst for Him.

United with Our Lady's sorrows,

Kind of funny, I'm going through that "dryness" now. Lent was almost "giddy" for me. I love Lent, the whole season, now there's sort of a 'sadness' and a more desert feel. I too wear Mary's scapular. Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding that most dear object. It's like her "hand" on me, even if I can't feel anything else.
