A month ago, we were having a spiritual retreat at the Confidentia Shrine in LAMAR with our couples’ group. Suddenly, I received a text message in the middle of the retreat. It was from one of our customers. She was very upset. I did not understand the reason for her frustration but she was truly angry. This caused anxiety to creep into my heart. It could have ruined our retreat. I thought the best thing was to keep focusing on our retreat, offer up this suffering as Capital of Grace for the intention of our retreat and for the couples who were participating, place our anxiety in Our Blessed Mother’s hands, and surrender it all to the LORD.    One week later, my wife and I met face-to-face with this client. She profoundly apologized for how she had acted with us. We ended our visit hugging each other and she had tears in her eyes. It was a SURSUM CORDA moment!    When things go wrong, how beautiful it is to be able to offer our anxiety and sufferings to our MTA as Capital of Grace with trust that something good will come out of it; and wait for the SURSUM CORDA moment!
