I am Growing in the Faith

My decision to join the Movement of Pure Hearts came about as a result of events in my church. Blessed Caroline Kózka’s relics arrived at our parish.

After a solemn Mass everyone present was allowed to venerate them. I received Holy Communion, said the Prayer of Pure Hearts, and joined the Movement.

My faith had been weak. I went to church once a week, on Saturdays (“because mother made me”) and on major feast days, although I never felt the need to do so. The turning point occurred in May and June of last year. It was then that I began to discover God, the meaning of the Mass, and the value of regular confession. Encouraged by my confessor, I began to read Holy Scripture, something that I had never done before. I also began to work on my character. I gave up blaspheming, lying, wishing ill of my enemies, and so on.

I began to discover prayer. Until then it had been a tedious duty, which I often avoided. A revolution also occurred in the way I confessed my sins. In the past, I would reveal only certain sins, and I did my penance mechanically. For two days at the most I would try to be good, and after that I would carry on committing the same old sins, which distanced me from God. The situation lasted for several years. I watched obscene movies without realizing it was a sin. I was caught in a vicious circle from which I did not want to break out. “What’s the point?” – I would say to myself.

Recently I have been mediating on the Joyful Mysteries and saying the Prayer to the Holy Spirit, which my mother recommended to me. I have also been enrolled in the holy scapular, which I always have with me. I wear it proudly, without worrying about other people’s reactions. If someone asks me, I explain what it is and how important it is to me. Every day I say the rosary and the chaplet of Divine Mercy, attend Holy Mass, and receive Holy Communion frequently. In addition, I try to go to confession every month. Each time I commit a grave sin, I do my best to confess it as soon as possible. I also pray for the priest who put me on the right path.

I have joined MPH knowing full well what is expected of me. I am glad such a movement exists and that I can be a member of it. And even though I am sometimes discouraged by my lack of understanding and by today’s world, which is so consumed with evil, where sin reigns and honesty, generosity, and sympathy are lacking, I do not lose hope, for I know Jesus is close to me and watches over me. At such moments, His words also come to mind: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Mat 11:28).

I know Jesus desires to help everyone, no matter what kind of life they lead. He is an anchor, a harbor, a spring from which all can drink and be refreshed. The words of Fr. J. Popieluszko have become my guide: “Let us remember every day that when we expect the truth from others, we should live the truth ourselves. When we expect justice, we should be just. When we expect courage and bravery, we should be courageous and brave.”
