Weekly thoughts and announcements from our Pastor, Fr. Tom Lewandowski.

Be Gentle With Your Heart!

On this road, this journey to the heart, you will see more, feel more, and be more than you’ve ever been before.  Your heart is open, your spirit is alive.  You’re open to all that the universe, life and God hold for you.  Because you’re that open, you are more sensitive than ever to people, energies, places, things. You are more sensitive to any unresolved issues in yourself and in those around you. You are open, more open than you’ve ever been.

Comfort yourself. Wrap yourself in a blanket of love and hope. Know that you will be feeling, seeing, and taking in a great deal.  Know that you will be healing at a deeper level than ever before. Most of the time this will bring joy. But an open heart is not one dimensional; joy is not the only emotion it will embrace. Make room in your heart, make room in your life, and time in your days to feel other feelings too – anger, grief, fear, exuberance, tenderness, betrayal and exhilaration – all the emotions an open heart feels.

You’re more open than you have ever been.  Take gentle loving care of yourself.  Be tender with your heart.  Melodie Beattie
