The Pearl

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant man, seeking fine pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 
(Matthew 13:45,46) 
Many of us know the parable of the pearl Merchant very well.
Interestingly, some people think that, in this particular story, only Jesus can be referred to as the pearl: The One to be find by each and every Christian.
It is so, however the other interpretation may serve us here as well:

imagine that, no mater what your past may look like, your soul is, and always will be, the said pearl. 
In fact, you are so precious to God that He decided to give everything up that you may be granted with heaven -
the place where your soul, freed from the mud and dirt, can shine forever.

But how to get there and - as the time come - be appreciated and embraced by the Creator of pearls himself?
Start with Mary, the Stella Maris,  lighthouse and treasurer of Jesus, and ask for her aid:
She is here to help you, my dear pearl-diver, to find the Divine Merchant. The One that had been dreaming
of your unique and magnificent pearl even before you were born.  

Tomasz, Racibórz

PS Please pray for me, I do need this badly because of my loneliness...
You all are in my prayers. God bless you!
