I can always count on dad to have some pearls of wisdom for me. This time we discussed praying for the dead, and tears shed in our lives showing how deeply we love and share in the pain and joy of Christ and His Church.
We are getting deeper into the amazing Gospel of John 6:30-35 today! The words of Christ to us... I am the bread of life, whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst. There are many in our life that question this Truth - those that are not in The Church find this hard just as many of the disciples of Christ left him at this point then. It means to much to me that I am able to share the belief of The Eucharist with my parents, children, children in laws, and grandchildren - one and all! There is no better gift or JOY to fill my heart, mind and soul! Sharing Christ in His Body and Blood is becoming ONE with HIM, and that is a miracle of LIFE/LOVE/LIGHT!
My friend, Scott Hahn, shared this today and to have him also understanding the Truth with me is amazing, too!
Jesus, I am yours and I long to die more and more so that you may live in me. I am fed by you and long to come to you often and with total mind, heart and soul set upon you... "My Lord and My God!" I am so grateful that my mom is regaining her strength and health. Continue to hold her in the palm of your hand. Jesus, we believe that you are Life-giving water and we never thirst! Isaiah 55:1New International Version (NIV)
Invitation to the Thirsty
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk"
