Friends of the Rosary:
At the beginning of this fifth week of Easter, we heard Jesus’ words on divine and human will. The Redeemer of the world said on Sunday’s reading: “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.” (Jn 15:1-8).
On Monday, the teaching was similar: “Whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.” (Jn 14:6-14).
Since most of our prayer is based on asking rather than thanksgiving, we must understand how this works.
When our human will is aligned with divine will, our requests are granted, not in our time but in God’s time — and for His greater glory.
Someone might be disappointed with the explanation. However, the factual reality is that Divinity’s timeframe and graces are much better than ours. We just need to place our full trust in Jesus and Mary. Never doubt!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
