Chaplet/Overcoming spiritual perfectionism

  • Hour 2 of 6-28-19
  • Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy with Drew. Jesus told St. Faustina that “those who are the greatest sinners have the greatest right to His mercy.” You are loved, and welcomed into the mercy of Jesus. Return to Him in confession and trust that His mercy is unfathomable.
  • Wendy and Jake discuss today’s Gospel reading – you can read here.
  • Jesus promises to always go after the one sheep who is missing; are you that lost sheep? Jake shares that He struggled to believe in God’s mercy, but learned that the key is to trust and always believe that His mercy is greater than any offense in the world. Don’t despair and think that you have to get to heaven on your own; rely on Jesus’ mercy and grace to get you there.
  • Spiritual perfectionism can take a toll. Do you get worn out from trying to be perfect? Colleen Carroll Campbell shares how feeling the need to have it all together affected her in many ways. She became aware that many saints struggled with perfectionism, and has learned that she can help others who are struggling as well. You can access her book ‘The Heart of Perfection’ here.
