When the soul doesn’t sing

We all have times when our soul doesn’t want to sing.  Here’s what to do–from Chiara Lubich.

When the soul doesn’t sing, then something is occupying it and this something should immediately be given to God.

The suffering could be brought on by external things (and these are more easily overcome by souls who want to love Love); the sufferings could be within us (scruples, doubts, melancholy, temptations, emptiness, homesickness).

They all need to be given to God.

The quicker the giving, the sooner love descends into our hearts.
