Are you serious God?  Why?  Why now?  Why have you chosen me?  Have you ever had these conversations with God in prayer?  So many times, in my spiritual life I have had these conversations with God.  Often, I feel as though God asks way more of me than I think possible.  I know I am not alone, and God asks the unimaginable from all of His faithful followers.  Today, I thought I would muse on my last conversation that went something like this!

Wow!!!  Yes, that is the correct word to begin this blog post!  I think I am still in shock!  On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our country just experienced the overturning of an almost 50-year-old law regarding abortion.  Roe vs. Wade was overturned!

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on being ready for battle, the spiritual battle.  This is a topic that I feel we cannot talk too much about.  This topic cannot be ignored as we seem to do in the world today.  Evil is everywhere and evil seeks to destroy us little by little every day.
