Think back to Jesus’ feeding of the five thousand. Facing a large, hungry crowd, his disciples beg him to “dismiss the crowds so that they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.” But Jesus answers, “There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves.”
Whatever drives the Church apart is an echo of this “dismiss the crowds,” and a reminder of the demonic tendency to divide. In times of trial and threat, this is a very common instinct. We blame, attack, break up, and disperse. But Jesus is right: “There is no need for them to go away.”
Jesus, I am so filled with all that you have given me this day and every day of my journey called Faith/Family/Farm! Yes, our family is our domestic Church where we share our Faith with great JOY! We are aware of the constant protection of Our Spiritual Mother, Mary of heaven and earth! She cares for our every need and allows us to find peace, joy, love... all the fruits of the Holy Spirit, as she takes our needs to her Son, Jesus Christ, in our homes! We are able to experience a small slice of heaven here with our eyes focused on heaven forever with you, O Jesus! May we die to self so that you may live in us now and forever and serve without counting the cost. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen
Life can be as fun as a bathtub of balloons! Yes, you are all special and loved so much! May we return the unconditional love and forgiveness and Mercy we have been given to those around us! Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
"Talk things over with Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. His love for you exceeds your ability to understand it. He realized how difficult it is for you to love the Blessed Sacrament as much as you would like, He knows how distracted you are with the problems of your daily life. He knows, too, how spiritual things have a way of getting lost in the shuffle. He understands!" Fr. Peffley
Adoration is the best hour I spend all week! I put our over 200 in the monstrance with Jesus - litany of FAMILY - both Pat's and mine!
