I tried to underline joy... yes, we said her name today in this amazing reading! We might not see Jesus with our eyes anymore, but more importantly we see him with the eyes of our hearts, minds and souls! Sin and death and darkness are no more!
"That rhubarb was growing just 5 minutes ago, Therese." We picked it from the garden after we got home from mass and soon it was in our first rhubarb upside down cake for the dessert with our Sunday dinner on the farm. Tonight we will gather together for a chicken dinner at Ruth's and see the baby pigs... Family Sundays are the best! We experience a lot of the joy and community and sharing of faith as the early disciples did... "Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved." Acts 2 - the first reading at mass today, and much of Father spoke about how we need to invite. As parents and grandparents we are the first and most important teachers of our young! May we add daily to our number as we share our faith clearly and with JOY!
Jesus, I am overwhelmed by the beautiful way you are orchestrating our lives - You are in control and we give it all over to you! Your Mercy is all around us, and may we then return it to all those in our domestic Church/family. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
St Faustina, pray for us. Jesus, we trust in you.
Maria put a fire breathing dragon out of frosting with dino bites cereal for his scales in honor of St George feastday today... Grandpa cut his head off and ate it!
Feast Day: April 23
Patronage: England, crusaders, soldiers...
St. George was a Greek who became an officer in the Roman army. He is venerated as a Christian martyr, put to death for his faith. He is usually pictured with a dragon, which in the Middle Ages was commonly used to represent the devil.
