I hope you are well and at peace, over the last few months I have been busy giving talks in schools,
prisons, parishes and youth retreats.
It is always a wonderful Grace to be able to tell my story and I have felt often, that this is one way I
can love God,
God never demands us to love him he only ever invites us to love him, and by bringing others to his
heart we also touch his heart with our love.
Someone said to me once, when you share your story you glorify what God has done in your life and
you relive it. This I think is why testimonies are so powerful and a living spirit of Gods Grace in us.
We all have a story of how God has brought us to his love and he invites us to share it often.
I gave a few talks at a youth retreat in France and there was over 1000 - 18 to 30 year olds, after my talks the young people were invited to speak to me and I prayed with them, this was very blessed and healing, some of them had been very wounded and I was able to bring Gods healing to them, also many went to confession,which is such a healing sacrament.
In many of the one to ones I had , it was made very plain to me how much pain there is in a world
without Gods laws of protection.
In my early life I thought that Gods laws were there to stop us being free, so I broke many of them only to find I was a prisoner, chained up to my sins. even though confession set me free the wounds that I has caused myself are still being healed, many years later.
True freedom comes by trying to love God and allowing God to love us.
I have always been very broken in my life and a real mess most of the time, This I sometime think is
why God loves me so much, because he came for the lost and broken sinners.
However every now and then I can love him by sharing my story or serving him in a person I meet,
by giving a kind word or a smile and by spending time with him in prayer.
He always loves me so perfectly, one day I might begin to love him in the way I should.
At moment I am in New York and over the next few months I will be giving talks in England,Scotland,Canada,Brazil,Ireland and Dubai. Please keep me in your prayers and know you are in mine.
God bless you in his deep love.
