Travel the Narrow Eternal Life

"One day, I saw two roads. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end of the road without realizing it. And at the end of the road there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And there numbers were so great that it was impossible to count them.

And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness, and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their sufferings."

- Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska

 The journey through this life, along the narrow path, can be challenging and even hopeless at times.  We need someone to walk with us and carry us through…some to lean on, especially during the lowest and saddest times of our life…someone faithful to simply hold our hands…be there for us, during the storms of our life…

"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many.  How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few." (Matthew 7:14, NAB)


  1. You're most welcome. We are all humble instruments of God. We journey and we try to share a little of what engulfs our spirit, with the simple hope that it will refresh someone else on the same path. God bless!
