Spiritual Exercise #2 Dealing with Frustration with Msgr. John Esseff

Msgr. Esseff was taken to the ER Thursday afternoon and then admitted to the hospital.  Believe or not, he wanted to continue his series of podcasts on the Year-end retreat for his listeners.  He phoned in this reflection from his hospital bed Saturday morning.  He discusses frustration with God and the marvels of His goodness when we surrender.  This is a very special podcast, please keep Msgr. Esseff in your prayers.

  3. Thank you Monsignor,
    This has been a profound reminder for me personally . You have confirmed God’ direction in my life. I always ask Him to keep me on the right path , for His Names sake. Another gift I continually ask Him for is the intimacy with Him that only He can give. He has Blessed me in so many ways, and I am so very grateful for His great Love for me, and all His kids.
    He has directed me to just think of Him and He is there. I think of Him always, and He is there!
    The awareness of His presence is constant. In troubled times I remember Him. His silence within sustains me. His great Peace that surpasses all understanding , what a gift!
    Your wisdom and counsel is so appreciated.
    Be healthy and well in His Holy Name and great power.
    God loves us , nothing else matters!
    Peace…..Love…….Joy…….now and in the new year to come!
