"Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
St. Francis of Assisi
During (m)any Christmas-- although majority of us are happy, cheerful and smiled-- many people are sad because of their loneliness. Perhaps this year, meaning of your life is gone along with someone close to you. I myself have suffered from a loss recently.
If you are wondering if your life is worth living right now, replace your thoughts with an image of the Holy Family. Among Them there is a solution to any of your problem -- They know exactly what does it mean to be lonely. They went through it too.
While experiencing pain, try to fight back your gloomy moods with three simple steps:
- First of all, be persistent in trusting ( as Mary did);
- Secondly, take every opportunity that is given to you by the Saviour ( God kept Joseph by Mary's side);
- And be happy with HIM ( at the end God rewarded the trust of the Holy Parents).
