Talk of going into the field next week.. once it warms up some. I am spending the day in the peaceful home of Pat's mom, and we were able to do morning prayer together which was very special. Soon mass will begin and I am excited to hear the homily about the amazing readings today! I admit that I looked ahead when I saw that today was the miracle of feeding the 5,000 in the beginning of John 6... yes, it is going to continue on into the meat and potatoes of The Eucharist! How we are fed with Jesus' Body and Blood!
Some of the highlights of the readings from today that I was able to read another time with Pat's mom... Acts 5 today... the Apostles after they were flogged and "ordered to stop speaking in the name of Jesus." rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the name. And all day long, both at the temple and in their homes, they did not stop teaching and proclaiming the Christ, Jesus.
Can I say that about myself? It is a good reminder!
Mom and I are sharing mass on EWTN this morning... hearing the miracle of feeding the 5,000 once again and now the homily... Father just shared one of the most famous healings at Lourdes - how when a man thought dead was healed when he was blessed with the Blessed Sacrament as it passed by in procession! "Miracles are necessary for the Christian faith to be credible." Looking at John and Patrick - I too feel this is ongoing today!

Jesus, thank you for this journey of life we are on and all that you give us to go forward down the narrow path carrying/dragging our most cherished cross and given the food we need through Word and Sacrament! May we, too, rejoice at being found worthy to suffer dishonor and never stop speaking your name and all the Truth and miracles you have given us on all levels.... How I love you my Jesus and long to burn with your strength so that we may do more miracles for God. Jesus, I trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
