How To Spell R-E-L-I-E-F

March 23rd, 2017 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized

There used to be a commercial asking the question: “How do you spell relief?” My answer is “T-R-U-S-T.” Trust in “Ask, and you shall receive.”  Trust in “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” Trust in “I will never forget you.” Certainly there are times in life when trust seems almost impossible. Our minds rivet on “It will never happen.” In such times we might reflect on the poem “Saturday” by L. N. Allen from Six Holy week Triolets.

To set the mind on the flesh is death.

            Set the mind on the Spirit for life and peace.

            Note where the sun rises, not where it sets.

To set the mind on the flesh is death.

Pray to Abba for hope. Not for breath,

But for mercy, forgiveness, release.

To set the mind on the flesh is death.

Set the mind on the Spirit for life and peace.
