my eyes are swelling as i type. of all the things said about Tita Cory, her unwavering faith impressed on me more than anything else. i promise to say the rosary more often. while some cynics (just as i was a few minutes ago) frown on repeated prayers, i realize now that solemnly repeating your prayers is equivalent to standing your ground and repeatedly reminding yourself that a divine force will take your side as long as you take his when a marching enemy storms your way. i believe that is what made Tita Cory a woman of strength and a woman at peace with her self.
