To the Daughters of the King
The world can be a dark place, but we must remember that the blackest of nights can always be illuminated by the light of Christ Jesus who lives among and within us. Do not allow the darkness to consume you, instead, my dear sister, be the light, by allowing the grace and joy of our Savior to radiate through every part of your being. Our world needs your light.
You, my dear sister, are the beautiful daughter of the King of Heaven and Earth. John reminds us, though, that the world does not know us, because it does not know Him (I John 3:1). Now is the time to make our Father known in this world, because His children, our brothers and sisters, still wander aimlessly in the desert of their own despair.
Sister, do not shy away from honoring the Lord in all you do, sacrificing your comfort for the sake of the Kingdom. The enemy will try to convince you that you were made for the comfort and pleasures of this world. This is a lie. You were made for the perfection of heaven. How could any momentary pleasure hold a candle to eternal joy with the Lord in your true home?
We become consumed with distractions and soon find ourselves distant from the Father, but He is waiting, watching, for you on the horizon. Come back to your Father, who is never as far away as you might think. Little steps – saying extra prayers, spending an hour in Eucharistic adoration, a daily rosary – will become giant leaps when done with a loving heart.
Beloved, let us build each other up. Let us choose to see the good in each other, knowing that we also desire others to see the good in us. Let us make it a resolution to help those around us become saints. Let us not be complacent with little sins casting a shadow on our souls.
Our prayers and our works can move mountains. We must answer the call to arms and join in on the spiritual battlefield, that is the greatest mountain that must be moved — sin. The enemy hates us, daughters of the King. How sweet it is that the Father has given us the grace to defeat the evil one. Every time we say yes to Him, we deal the fallen angels a fatal blow and the mountain moves ever more.
Yes, there is darkness, but your light will shine through. Unite your heart with our Savior.
The Son is rising and beckoning a new dawn. The day will come when we reach the summit, plant our victory flag and darkness will be no more.
Your sister in Christ,
