• "Everything is a grace, everything is the direct effect of our Father's love—difficulties, contradictions, humiliations, all the soul's miseries, her burdens, her needs - everything, because through them, she learns humility, realizes her weakness - Everything is a grace because everything is God's gift. Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events—to the heart that loves, all is well."

Divine Aspirations

I learned about Divine Aspirations at a time when I was being 'fire-tested' by God. It was my heart's desire to be able to trust in the Lord, and all his plans completely. Admittedly, I can be demanding and overbearing at times and twice as terrible when things do not go my way. And I often hurt the ones I love the most. Also, I worry a lot, and so I have learned to say "Jesus, I trust in you." every time I do.

According to http://catholicism.about.com/od/prayers/g/Aspiration.htm,
"An aspiration is a short prayer meant to be memorized and repeated throughout the day. Sometimes called an ejaculation, these prayers are meant to help us continually turn our thoughts toward God."
Now, I have learned to say more Divine Aspirations like "From all sin, deliver me, O Lord!" especially when I know I am about to sin!
From all sin... for Iphone

This inspired me to make these little prayers into Ipad and Iphone wall papers. Whenever I unlock my ipad or iphone, I see the Aspiration I am trying to memorize.

Proverbs 13:25. I also tried my favorite verses.
And I am now sharing them with you! Check out the Divine Aspirations page on the blog.

As Bishop Camillo Ballin, M.C.C.J said in his book, OREMUS, "It is good to memorize these aspirations so that in times of stress, words that can focus your attention back to the holy come easily."

You can choose and download here.

I do hope they will also help you become a step closer to holiness!
