Da li knjige mogu da poprave mentalno zdravlje? — Psihoterapija online

Nova istraživanja pokazuju da postoji značajan uticaj čitanja na različite aspekte mentalnog zdravlja. Mnogi “knjiški moljci” su zabrinuti zbog svemoćnog uticaja socijalnih mreža, jer to neumitno vodi ka opadanju zainteresovanosti opšte populacije za čitanje knjiga. Ali, ankete pokazuju da trendovi čitanja knjiga, u stvari, ostaju stabilni tokom prošle dve decenije. Na primer, Galupovo istraživanje iz […]

Narcissism can become a phenomenon affecting both people in a relationship.

When it comes to love, flee the kingdom of Narcissus (and narcissists!) — Aleteia — Catholic Spirituality, Lifestyle, World News, and Culture

Here we go again, with another analysis of someone in Greek Mythology. This time I am going to be talking about Narcissus, son of the river god Cephissus and the nymph Liliope. I have recently become more interested in psychology, which led me to explore the connection between Narcissus and the narcissism. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a narcissist is someone with ‘too much interest in and admiration for [their] own physical appearance and abilities. They are usually someone lacking in empathy and are ready to exploit others for their gain. By exploring the myth, I hope to gain and provide a clear understanding of who Narcissus was and how he relates to modern-day narcissism now.
The Myth of Narcissus
In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a hunter from Thespiae and was most known for his beauty. Narcissus was proud, and his disdain for those who loved him caused some problems. It was written that some had taken their own lives, to prove their devotion to his striking beauty. There are indeed multiple versions of his myth, But I will be talking about the classic version as featured in Ovid’s book 3 of his Metamorphoses. This is the story of Echo and Narcissus. It’s quite a sad story, though I wouldn’t rank it in the top 10 most heartbreaking Greek mythologies.
Narcissus was taking a walk in the woods, when Echo, an Oread (a mountain nymph) saw him and fell deeply in love with him. She then proceeded to follow him, and Narcissus noticed he was being followed and shouted ‘Who’s there?’. Echo, being an ‘echo’ repeated ‘Who’s there’. I find this quite amusing because had it been probably anyone else, they would have been able to answer the question without the echo. Echo eventually revealed her identity and attempted to embrace him. He stepped away and told her to leave him alone. She became heartbroken and spent the rest of her life in lonely glens until nothing but an echo remained of her. This myth sounds eerily similar to some of my friend’s tales of woes at university about unrequited love. Apart from the last part about becoming an echo for all eternity. To continue though, Nemesis (as an aspect of Aphrodite), the goddess of revenge, noticed this behaviour and decided to punish Narcissus. This myth seems to be full of recognisable modern-day English words; nemesis, echo etc. Nemesis decided to punish Narcissus by, one time during summer after he was getting thirsty, luring him to a pool where he leaned over the water and saw his reflection. He proceeded to fall deeply in love… with his reflection. However, each time he bent down to kiss his reflection, it seemed to disappear. Narcissu grew ever more thirsty, but would not leave the pool for fear of losing sight of his reflection. In the end, he died of thirst, and in his place grew the narcissus flower. There are other endings to the mythology, in which Narcissus commits suicide at being unable to attain his true love.
The Interpretation
One of the suggestions you can take from this myth is to be wary of vanity and self-love. There is a danger with social media nowadays to appear overly confident. I am not saying that it is wronge to be confident, but humility goes a long way too. Sometimes we humans tend to get very caught up in our own little worlds, and in convincing ourselves of our worth in this world we go too far the wrong way. It can be argued in this myth that Echo had not enough ego, where Narcissus had far too much. It’s about finding the perfect balance. And if you do find yourself in contact with someone who you think loves themselves a little (I mean a lot) too much, then my advice is to stay away. Narcissists will never have a good impact on your life. Echo would have been better off had she stayed away.
Until next time,

Who better to protect us than the former guardian of the Child Jesus?
While God is always with us and stands by us as our ultimate protector, he also allows the saints and angels a unique role as intercessors, who can call upon his power to protect us in our time of need.
One of the most well-known and powerful protectors is St. Joseph, who was the guardian of Jesus when he was a child. He kept him safe from harm as long as he could, until he died a happy death in Jesus’ arms.

How did St. Joseph die?
Here is a short prayer from the St. Joseph’s Manual (published in 1853) that chooses St. Joseph as your personal patron and protector, asking him to daily intercede for you, while also pledging your own commitment to prayer and purity.
O Holy Joseph, virgin spouse of the Virgin Mother of God, most glorious advocate of all such as are in danger, or in their last agony, and most faithful protector of all the servants of Mary, your dearest Spouse, I, N., in the presence of Jesus and Mary, do, from this moment, choose you for my powerful patron and advocate, in order that I may obtain the grace of a most happy death. I firmly resolve and purpose never to forsake you, nor to say or do any thing against your honor. Receive me, therefore, for your constant servant, and recommend me to the constant protection of Mary, your dearest Spouse, and to the everlasting mercies of Jesus my Savior. Assist me in all the actions of my life. I now offer them to the greater and everlasting glory of Jesus and Mary, as well as to your own.

In any case, it is surprising how well these sanctuaries are, in fact, aligned.

Do not be discouraged if your good works do not have the effects that you wanted. .
Sometimes your good works may even get people upset, and this can often lead us to even regret our action and even to be scared to perform good works again.
.
But, we must not underestimate the power of a good work, good works always bring good, and God will always appreciate a good work.
.
Look to the martyrs of the faith, they performed one of the greatest good works of all… dying for their faith.
.
Those in the Coliseum watched as people laughed at them or eagerly awaiting their deaths. Many of these martyrs saw nothing good from the world at the day of their death. .
They saw people who were not affected by their act of faith as they gleefully watched the martyrs die.
.
In the martyrs’ shoes, if they only cared about how their good work affected the people around them, then their death was for nothing, because all the people in Coliseum did not care about their faith. .
But, the martyrs still continued to die for their faith, because a good work is done for the good of that work, it is done for how it brings love to God.
.
God sees your good works, and He also works through failures as well as successes. .
.

“Let us go forward in peace, our eyes upon heaven, the only one goal of our labors.” -St. Therese of Lisieux
“The Eucharist, behold the Christian’s treasure, his delight on earth. Since Jesus is in the Eucharist for him personally, his whole life ought to be drawn to it like a magnet to its center.” – St. Peter Julian Eymard
“The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white host.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen “One is struck, when reading Sister Thérèse’s life, to see so few extraordinary events related in it; and I believe that her life was in fact very simple and that extraordinary events were very rare, at least where outward signs are concerned. As for her inner life, that’s another matter entirely. My conversations with Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus and my study of her writings have led me to believe that God raised her to the highest level of a life of union. I wanted to reread what Saint Teresa wrote on this subject in “Interior Castle”, and it was not without emotion that I recognized that her description of even the highest states corresponded exactly with what I had observed in Sister Thérèse. In particular, what she says in her Life Story reproduces in almost the same words what Saint Teresa says about the sixth stage in “Interior Castle”. ⠀ ⠀

In times past, victims, pure and spotless, were the only ones accepted by the Strong and Powerful God. To satisfy Divine Justice, perfect victims were necessary, but the law of Love has succeeded to the law of fear, and Love has chosen me, a weak and imperfect creature. Is not this choice worthy of Love? Yes, in order that Love be fully satisfied, it is necessary that It lower Itself, and that It lower Itself to nothingness and transform this nothingness into fire.”

arcissism can become a phenomenon affecting both people in a relationship.
We all know the story of Narcissus, various versions of which were told by different Greek and Latin authors. The legend goes that Narcissus, while bending down to drink from a spring of water, sees his own reflection in the water and falls in love with it. The story ends in some versions with Narcissus drowning in the pool trying to reach himself. The genius of Oscar Wilde, however, rewrites the ending in a very interesting way:
“When Narcissus died, the pool of his pleasure changed from a cup of sweet waters into a cup of salt tears, and the Oreads came weeping through the woodland that they might sing to the pool and give it comfort.
“And when they saw that the pool had changed from a cup of sweet waters into a cup of salt tears, they loosened the green tresses of their hair and cried to the pool and said, ‘We do not wonder that you should mourn in this manner for Narcissus, so beautiful was he.’
“‘But was Narcissus beautiful?’ said the pool.
“’Who should know that better than you?’ answered the Oreads. ‘Us did he ever pass by, but you he sought for, and would lie on your banks and look down at you, and in the mirror of your waters he would mirror his own beauty.’
“And the pool answered, ‘But I loved Narcissus because, as he lay on my banks and looked down at me, in the mirror of his eyes I saw ever my own beauty mirrored.’”
Narcissism can become a phenomenon affecting both people in a relationship. The other person becomes just a mirror for my ego. The narcissist here is not focused directly on himself, but more deviously seeks out the other to find himself in them. The other person becomes the excuse and the means to love only oneself.
For this reason, my invitation for the second step towards happiness as a couple (see the first step in my previous article) is this: “Dare to go beyond yourself.” Overcome narcissism. The other person isn’t a mirror of your cravings, but is your ally towards creating an “us” that leads each one of you towards a goal that surpasses you and fulfills you. True love requires accepting the adventure (and misfortune) of otherness.
The crystallization of love
Speaking of otherness, who among us hasn’t experienced, while falling in love, a kind of surreal mutual understanding? The other person thinks just like I do at the same time as I do. It seems we don’t even need to talk to each other in order to be in agreement. The attention we pay to each other certainly contributes to this, but to a great extent, in this incredible harmony there’s much of what Stendhal calls “crystallization.”
What does this mean? Let’s listen to Stendhal himself:
“In the salt mines, nearing the end of the winter season, the miners will throw a leafless wintry bough into one of the abandoned workings. Two or three months later, through the effects of the waters saturated with salt which soak the bough and then let it dry as they recede, the miners find it covered with a shining deposit of crystals. The tiniest twigs no bigger than a tom-tit’s claw are encrusted with an infinity of little crystals scintillating and dazzling. The original little bough is no longer recognizable.”
So it happens in a heart struck by Cupid’s arrows. This is the phase crystallization where “we are pleased to adorn with a thousand perfections” the person who has stolen our heart. The mind is so active and full of adrenaline that it “draws from all that it sees itself the discovery of new perfections in the beloved.”
In this experience, it seems like I am attentive to—indeed, absorbed by—the other, but not infrequently, what’s happening is that I’m actually absorbed in my projection of myself. The focus is on me and my desire, and the other person is nothing more than an accessory, an excuse. Now, the greater the illusion, the greater the disappointment will be. Consequently, we must make two complementary efforts, which I suggest to you as a friendly task.
Practical steps
The first effort is something you need to do on your own. Think realistically—I know it’s not easy, because Cupid will blind you if you’re newly in love—about who the other person is, accepting their true otherness and not what you want them to be.
The second thing, especially if you have been together for a long time, is to make an initial act of forgiveness towards the other person. I’m convinced that before forgiving the other person’s deeds and misdeeds, one must forgive their very otherness!12-year-old Benigna Cardoso da Silva sought to protect her purity, even if it cost her life.
St. Maria Goretti is well known for being a “martyr for purity,” fighting the young man who sexually assaulted her and begging him not to sin, even to the point of death. Since her canonization in 1950 the Church has begun recognizing other individuals who had a similar desire to respect God’s gift of chastity, not even backing down when their lives were threatened.
Such was the case for Benigna Cardoso da Silva, a holy 12-year-old girl living in Santana do Cariri, Brazil. At an early age she had a desire to receive the Eucharist, and after making her First Communion was firm in her resolution to keep the 10 Commandments.

She never missed Mass and would freely offer penance on First Fridays in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Benigna also read the Bible on a regular basis and sought out the counsel of her parish priest when a boy her age started to make unwanted advances.

Reading the Bible solidified her faith and strengthened her will to resist whatever proposals the boy would try on her. However, the boy would not take no for an answer and was enraged when she repeatedly turned him down.

Then on October 24, 1941, the boy hid in the bushes in hopes of catching Benigna off guard when she was fetching water. He was hoping to rape her, but she valiantly fought off his attempts and prevented him from forcing himself upon her.

This refusal added fuel to his rage and the boy took out a machete and started attaching Benigna. He made several blows, the last one killing her instantly. The boy fled, but her body was soon found. He was eventually arrested and spent most of his life in prison. In 1991 he was released and returned to the site of the murder, sincerely repentant of what he had done.

Benigna’s heroic example became an inspiration for the local people and in 2011 her cause for canonization was open. On October 2, 2019, Pope Francis authorized her “martyrdom,” paving the way for her beatification in Brazil.

She will join the ranks of Maria Goretti as a “martyr for purity,” highlighting the beautiful gift of sexuality and how it is to be preserved and used in the right way according to the plan God has created for it.

Thank God for the witness of these shining martyrs of purity in our corrupt and defiled age !
They would not submit to evil even to save their lives, loving God’s laws better than life itself.
“For they shall follow the Lamb wherever he goes, singing the song only virgins can sing.”Begin your day by engaging in a little spiritual warfare!
It is often said that how well your morning goes will determine the outlook of your day. This is especially true in the spiritual life!
If we allow ourselves to be lured by a temptation early in the morning, we will be more susceptible to spiritual attacks as the day progresses. This is why it is important to begin the day by declaring our love and loyalty to God, asking him to drive away the devil and his temptations.

Here is a short prayer from the Golden Manual that can be added to your morning prayers, fortifying your life with the “armor of God.”

O Holy Trinity, one God, defend me this day from the deceits and temptations of the devil, keep me from all sin, and preserve me from sudden and unprovided death. Raise up, O God, my body from sleep and drowsiness, and my soul from sin, that I may praise and glorify thy holy name, to whom belongs all benediction, and honor, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, now and for ever. Amen.One of the greatest Christian singer-songwriters living today reveals the majesty of Creation.
There’s a beautiful scene in the film Awakenings in which Leonard, a man who has suddenly been released from a decades-long catatonic state, asks to see his doctor in the middle of the night. “We’ve got to tell everybody,” Leonard tells him. “We’ve got to remind them how good it is.” He picks up a newspaper. “What’s it say? All bad. It’s all bad. People have forgotten what life is all about. They’ve forgotten what it is to be alive. They need to be reminded. They need to be reminded about what they have and what they can lose. What I feel is the joy of life, the gift of life, the freedom of life, the wonderment of life!”
It’s an apt description of what Bill Fay’s recent albums, including the brand new Countless Branches, are all about.

Fay first gained a cult following with the release of a symphonic self-titled album in 1970, and the more experimental Time of the Last Persecution, which is marked by musical extravagances of the era, a year later. A blend of McCartney, Dylan, and Cohen, Fay’s songs were set apart from those of his contemporaries by a deeply spiritual, and unabashedly Christian, worldview, especially on Persecution. On songs like the title track and “‘Til the Christ Comes Back” we meet a wild-haired man regarding the chaos of a world gone wrong with prophetic fierceness. But we also meet a poet gazing in amazement at the mystery of life itself. “You were born though you need not have been born here at all,” he sings on “Plan D.” “And is that not some cause for worship, being born among these trees?”

Fay, too, fell into a decades-long silence. When he re-emerged in 2012 with Life Is People, it was with an even deeper sense of the beauty and wonder of life (“The Never Ending Happening”)—especially of human life. On “Cosmic Concerto,” he sings as if from a park bench, observing grandparents, parents, and little children playing: “There are miracles everywhere you go…Like my old dad said: Life is people.” The prophetic edge remained, especially on the darker follow-up Who Is the Sender? Tracks like “War Machine,” “Order of the Day,” and “The Freedom to Read”—a tribute to biblical translator William Tyndale that targets both the religious and secular authorities of the time—reveal a man still ready to bare his teeth at a moment’s notice. But Fay’s vision of the world was not ultimately poetic or political; it was still very much Christian (“Thank You Lord,” “A Frail and Broken One,” and one of my favorites, “There Is a Valley”). In fact, he is arguably one of the greatest Christian singer-songwriters living today—even though most Christians have probably never heard his name.

Countless Branches, Fay’s third album with Dead Oceans, continues this trajectory. But the prophetic voice is now almost entirely channeled into revealing the majesty of creation, and the more gentle, stripped-down acoustic piano gives us Fay at his most awed and humble.

It begins with familiar words of warning: “Everyone knows it, it’s self-evident / This world ain’t safe in human hands.” But where such a thought may lead to despair in the faithless, Fay is still (as “Salt of the Earth” and the title track remind us) a man marked by biblical faith; and very quickly, Countless Branches becomes an album of hope. In his book Surprised by Hope, Fay’s fellow Englishman N.T. Wright makes a compelling case that the word “hope” has been distorted in Christianity over the centuries, coming to mean a Platonic longing to escape from earth off into heaven, forever. We should want to go to heaven when we die, of course; but that’s only part of the story. The Christian hope, Wright argues, is that it will ultimately be on earth as it is in heaven; that the new world promised by Christ’s Resurrection will be fulfilled with the renewal of all of creation; that God will be, as Paul says, “all in all” (1 Cor. 15:28). This theme appears on the previous two albums (“The Healing Day,” “A Page Incomplete”) but takes on a greater importance on Countless Branches. Songs like “How Long, How Long,” “Time’s Going Somewhere,” and especially “Love Will Remain” express Fay’s Pauline hope. “Love will remain when knowledge has passed away,” he sings. “Love will remain when other tongues have failed.” It’s a lovely expression in a truth articulated by Bishop Barron in The Priority of Christ: “In heaven itself, faith will fade away (for we shall see God’s essence), and hope will evanesce (for we will have attained what we had hoped for), but love will remain, because love is what heaven is.”

But Fay is again at his most powerful when singing about the precious and baffling gift of life itself (“Filled with Wonder Once Again,” “One Life”). And the gift of new life seems to be especially on his mind. The bonus track “Tiny” is wonderful, but “Your Little Face”—especially the deeply moving bonus acoustic version—is a standout moment. It’s a staggeringly beautiful ode to a little life, a celebration of the mystery of one human being in light of the grandness of the cosmos:

In the furthest reaches of outer space

Slowly, but surely, the globe was made

But the sprawling sky, and the rolling sea

Ain’t nothing compared to the eyes that I see

On your little face
Your little face…

Stars don’t

PRVO ČITANJE:
Početak Knjige Izreka 1, 1-7. 20-33

Poticaj da se izabere mudrost

Mudre izreke Salomona, sina Davidova, kralja izraelskog: da se spozna mudrost i pouka, da se shvate razumne riječi; da se primi umna pouka, pravda i pravica i nepristranost; da se dade pamet neiskusnima, mladiću znanje i umijeće; kad mudar čuje, da umnoži znanje, a razuman steče mudrije misli; da razumije izreke i prispodobe, riječi mudraca i njihove zagonetke. Strah je Gospodnji početak spoznaje, ali ludi preziru mudrost i pouku.
Mudrost glasno uzvikuje na ulici, na trgovima diže svoj glas; propovijeda po bučnim uglovima, na otvorenim gradskim vratima govori svoje riječi: »Dokle ćete, vi glupi, ljubiti glupost, i dokle će podsmjevačima biti milo podsmijevanje, i dokle će bezumnici mrziti znanje?
Poslušajte moju opomenu! Gle, svoj duh pred vas izlijevam, hoću vas poučiti svojim riječima. Koliko sam vas zvala, a vi ste odbijali; pružala sam ruku, ali je nitko ne opazi. Nego ste odbacili svaki moj savjet i niste poslušali moje opomene; zato ću se i ja smijati vašoj propasti, rugat ću se kad vas obuzme tjeskoba: kad navali na vas strah kao nevrijeme i zgrabi vas propast kao vihor, kad navali na vas nevolja i muka. Tada će me zvati, ali se ja neću odazvati; tražit će me, ali me neće naći. Jer su mrzili spoznaju i nisu izabrali Gospodnjeg straha, niti su poslušali moj savjet, nego su prezreli svaku moju opomenu. Zato će jesti plod svojeg vladanja i nasititi se vlastitih savjeta. Jer glupe će ubiti njihovo odbijanje, a nemar će upropastiti bezumne. A tko sluša mene, bezbrižan ostaje i spokojno živi bez straha oda zla.«

Otpjev Vidi 1 Kor 3, 18-19; 1, 23. 24
R. Ako tko misli da je mudar među vama na ovome svijetu, neka bude lud, da bude mudar. * Jer mudrost ovoga svijeta ludost je pred Bogom.
O. A mi propovijedamo Krista raspetoga, Božju silu i Božju mudrost. * Jer mudrost.

DRUGO ČITANJE:
Iz Izlaganja o Dijatesaronu, svetoga Efrema, đakona (1, 18-19: SC 121, 52-53)

Riječ Božja, neiscrpno vrelo života

Gospodine, može li tko ijednu riječ tvoju potpuno shvatiti? Više je onoga što ostavljamo nego što usvajamo, na sličan način kao što žedni piju s izvora. Prema različitim mogućnostima shvaćanja riječ Gospodnja pokazuje različite likove onima koji je proučavaju. Gospodin je obojio svoju riječ različitim bojama, tako da se svaki tko se za nju zanima može zagledati u ono što mu se sviđa. U svoju je riječ stavio različite vrste blaga, da se svaki od nas obogati onako kako istražuje. Riječ je Božja stablo života koje ti na svim granama nudi blagoslovljeni plod, kao što je i pećina koja je u pustinji provrela sa svih strana pružala duhovni napitak. Apostol o tom kaže: Jeli su duhovno jelo i pili duhovno piće.
Tko, dakle, dobije kakav dio od onoga blaga, neka ne misli da je to što je on našao sve što se u ovoj riječi nalazi, nego neka zna da je to samo ono što je od tog obilja uspio pronaći. Neka ne govori da je ova riječ prazna i neplodna i neka je ne prezire stoga što je do njega dopro i zapao ga samo jedan njezin dio, nego neka zahvaljuje Bogu zbog njezina bogatstva, kojega on ne može svega uočiti. Raduj se što si u ovoj stvari nadvladan i ne žalosti se što te Božja riječ nadvisila. Žedan se čovjek veseli kad pije, a ne žalosti se što ne može iscrpsti cijelo vrelo. Izvor neka nadmaši tvoju žed, a ne tvoja žed izvor, jer, ako se tvoja žed utaži a da izvor ne presuši, kad ponovno ožedniš, moći ćeš opet iz njega piti; kad bi naprotiv izvor presušio pošto je tvoju žeđ utažio, tvoja pobjeda nad izvorom bila bi zlo za tebe.
Zahvaljuj Bogu za ono što si zahvatio, i ne žalosti se za ono što je preobilno ostalo. Ono što si zahvatio i do čega si dopro, tvoj je dio, a ono što je ostalo, tvoja je baština. Ako ustraješ, u drugo vrijeme možeš uzeti ono što zbog svoje ograničenosti ne možeš zahvatiti u jedan čas. Nemoj preuzetno pokušavati da jednim srkom progutaš što se ne može jednim srkom progutati. Nemoj iz lijenosti odustati od onoga što možeš uzimati malo-pomalo.

Otpjev 1 Pt 1, 25; Bar 4, 1
R. Riječ Gospodnja zauvijek ostaje. * A to je Riječ koja vam je naviještena kao Radosna vijest.
O. Ona je knjiga Božjih zapovijedi, Zakon koji će trajati dovijeka: tko ga se držao bude, taj će živjeti. * A to.

(Slijedeći se dio može izostaviti).

Spasi puk Svoj, Gospodine *
i blagoslovi baštinu Svoju!

sačuvati nas od grijeha!
Smiluj se nama, Gospodine, * smiluj se nama!
Nek bude milosrđe Tvoje, Gospodine, nad nama *
kako se ufamo u Tebe!
U Tebe se, Gospodine ufam: *
o da ne budem postiđen dovijeka!

Molitva
Bože, rekao si da boraviš u pravednu i iskrenu srcu. Daj da mi budemo takvi te se trajno nastaniš u nama. Po Gospodinu.

O. Amen.
Blagoslivljajmo Gospodina.
O. Bogu hvala.

Trojstva) VEČERNJA MOLITVA Isuse, ostavio si nam Sebe u sakramentu svoga Tijela i Krvi. Dao si nam neizreciv dar. Dar bogat ljubavlju. Darovao si nam čitavog Sebe. Hvala Ti, Isuse. Hvala Ti, Isuse, što si oduvijek bio čovjek blizine. Uz Tebe se svatko osjećao prihvaćen i ljubljen. Nitko nije imao dojam da si ga olako shvatio ili površno slušao. I danas je tako, Isuse. Utaži, Gospodine, moju glad za osobom povjerenja, osobom koja ima vremena i ljubavi za drugoga. Osobom koja ne važe, koja ne mjeri, koja nije zaokupljena prvenstveno sobom. Koja zna čuti nečije teškoće i onda kada samo šutnja progovara. Osobom koja će bez uvrijeđenosti saslušati ono što možda i ne želi čuti. Pomozi mi da tu osobu tražim jedino u Tebi. Znaš i sam koliko sam puta ranjena zbog neprisutnosti osoba koje bi mi trebale biti blizu. Razočarana jer se netko od najbližih ne sjeti da mi je potreban ili se ne sjeti nečega što nije trebao previdjeti. Boli me kada primijetim da me netko uopće ne sluša ili me potpuno ignorira. Gospodine, pomozi mi ispuniti te praznine. Pomozi mi drugome biti poput Tebe. Biti netko tko zna drugome biti blizak, tko zna biti bližnji. Biti netko tko ima vremena i ljubavi za drugoga. Isuse, održao si svoje obećanje da ćeš biti s nama u sve dane do svršetka svijeta. Dao si nam sebe u Kruhu života. Na Tebe više nitko ne mora čekati, Isuse, u svakom času si sama prisutnost. Na svakoj Misi, u svakoj Pričesti. Hvala Ti, Isuse, na tom daru. Hvala ti što se i meni daruješ svojim Tijelom i svojom Krvlju. Više nisam sama, nisam prepuštena samoj sebi.
