Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

 Letter from the Devil This can really make you think.

“I saw you yesterday as you began your daily chores.
You awoke without kneeling to pray. 
As a matter of fact, you didn't even bless your meals, or pray before going to bed last night.
You are so unthankful, I like that about you!
I cannot tell you how glad I am that you have not changed your 
way of living, Fool, you are mine.
Remember, you and I have been going steady for years, 
and I still don't love you yet.
As a matter of fact, I hate you, because I hate God.
He kicked me out of heaven, and I'm going to use you as long as possible to pay him back.
You see, Fool, GOD LOVES YOU and HE has great plans in store for you!
But you have yielded your life to me, and I'm going to make your life a living hell. 
That way, we'll be together twice. 
This will really hurt God.
Thanks to you, I'm really showing Him who's boss
in your life with all of the good times we've had.
We have been...
Watching dirty movies, cursing people out, stealing, lying, being hypocritical, fornicating, overeating, telling dirty jokes, gossiping, being judgmental, back stabbing people, disrespecting adults, and specially your parents!, no respect for the Church, bad attitudes.
SURELY you don't want to give all this up.
Come on, Fool, let's burn together forever. 
I've got some hot plans for us. 
This is just a letter of appreciation from me to you.

I'd like to say "THANKS" for letting me use you for most of your foolish life.You are so gullible, I laugh at you. 
When you are tempted to sin, you give in HA HA HA, you make me sick.
Sin is beginning to take its toll on your life.
You look 20 years older, and now, I need new blood.

So go ahead and teach some children how to sin.
All you have to do is smoke, get drunk or drink while underage, cheat, gamble, gossip, fornicate, and live being as selfish as possible.
Do all of this in the presence of children and they will do it too. 
Kids are like that.
Well, Fool, I have to let you go for now.

I'll be back in a couple of seconds to tempt you again. 
If you were smart, you would run somewhere, confess your sins, and live for God with what little bit of life that you have left.
It's not my nature to warn anyone, but to be your age and still sinning; it's becoming a bit ridiculous. 
Don't get me wrong, I still hate you.
