Having Asperger’s Syndrome can make one feel left out, like an outcast. Not being properly brought up in the Catholic faith, and having to explore that faith on your own, can also be hard. Here are two struggles for me. I admit I am a broken person, wanting to be pieced back together by my Creator. As a young adult wanted to experience and explore my own faith. Attending Bible study in my mid-twenties was were I met on of my close friends who introduced me to my current parish, Our Lady of Lourdes. It is here I felt home, where I really got to know God through Mary. It was frequently going to church and prayers that He opened the door to my vocation(s). Many times alI have fallen since joining my parish, but no matter how many times I fell or stumbled, God was always assuring me, “You are my beloved child, with whom I am well pleased.” Mother Mary has indeed obtained answers to many intentions that I have offered into her hands to the Father. Because I love my God and Lord, and my parish, I have felt inspired to serve Him with all my heart, my soul, mind, and my strength.
Jesus once asked His disciples, “Who do you say that I am?”, with Peter correctly answering, “You are the Christ, the Son of God.” Ergo, my challenge for you and for myself is asking Jesus, “who do You, Lord, say that I am (to You)?”
When you run out of love, hope, strength, patience, God will lovingly replenish you. Just come to Him. He is waiting.
