Although it may not always be apparent to others, we are all broken. Bad things happen to good people every day. No one escapes completely intact. Whether our broken heartedness comes from disappointment and despair, a lost loved one, a horrific illness, potential financial ruin, or any other type of pain or trauma, we need to remember that the Lord is close. When our spirit is crushed, He delivers.
Ask St. Anthony to help you accept the inevitability of heartbreak and to use it to feel the true presence of our compassionate Lord in your life.
