Saint Josephine Batika and Her Two Suitcases


Is your daily handbag or briefcase light as a feather, or is it weighed down with anxious preoccupation?  If heavy and spilling over, your load is in “your” control.  If airy light, you’ve learned to trust God enough to have Him help carry “your” load.  That’s when the Lord says to us, “I no longer call your servants, but friends.”  –John 15:15

Either way, Batika said this about carrying her two suitcases:

One carries my sins and the other contains the graces needed to get to heaven.”

“Be good, love the Lord, pray for those who do not know Him.  What a grace it is to know God!”

Good advice, don’t you think?
