Such an amazing first reading today from Deuteronomy 30... Choose LIFE! How do we do that? We receive the answer there also... by loving the Lord, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him. How does he speak to us daily? Through Jesus in The Word read throughout the world in every church, by looking to the Saints brought to us throughout the day... St Maria Goretti is such a beautiful example to us of how she loved the Lord, listened to His Voice of Truth, and held fast to him in the face of a brutal death at the hands of her attacker. The Sacraments are there to help us love, hear and hold fast to Jesus! The Church is there to help us reach forever in heaven with Jesus! Our Lady is my forever companion at bringing me to her Son and showing me how to uphold The Truth!
Lord, we choose LIFE with all that we can give! May we rid ourselves of our selfishness that comes between us and your Truth! We thank you for the wonderful examples of giving our all in love that we have with Our Lady and The Saints! Jesus, we trust in you. Amen
This really speaks to me! I am trying to bring more peace and joy and love into my home for lent!
How I love Venerable Thomas A'Kempis! He filled my early Catholic days with so much Truth! This is reminding me to get out my worn falling apart Imitation of Christ, and pour over each word and groan with the wonder of it all!
