All the way to heaven

Today is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross (14th) and tomorrow the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows (15th) "The Virgin Mary, who believed in the Word of the Lord, did not lose her faith in God when she saw her Son rejected, humiliated and placed on the cross. She stayed near Jesus, suffering and praying unto the end. And she saw the radiant dawn of His Resurrection. Let us learn from her to bear witness to our faith through a life of humble service, ready to pay personally so as to remain faithful to the Gospel of charity and truth, in the certainty that nothing of what we do will be lost".

How do we translate this faith into our everyday reality? Through trust in the love of God whose promise is resurrection - all the way to heaven is heaven, someone said, because Jesus said "I am the Way."
