The Gospel today is the beginning of John 6 with the feeding of the 5,000, and I looked ahead and we will do the chapter in the days ahead! It does make so much sense to ponder this now..."Jesus continues to feed the multitudes with the bread of life in he Eucharist, for which we give thanks especially during the Easter Season." Christ has gifted us with His Body and Blood to be fed and go forth filled with The Holy Spirit and be his hands and feet!
My morning was filled with baby chicks, little 4 week old Joy getting a bath and dressed in her Baptismal dress that her great-grandmother Verly made for her mom and Aunts 37 years ago, and then pictures that make my world go around! Praying with John and Pat this morning I was so filled with wonder and awe to realize that we have John 6 coming to ring the Truth far and wide! "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst." John 6:35 That is our Truth in a nutshell and in black and white!
Lord, we are filled with so much excitement and JOY at the wonderful Sacraments of your Church which you instituted to aid us on the journey down the narrow path carrying/dragging our most Cherished Cross and following after you. Bless both Joy as she is baptized into The Church and her brother, David, who will now come the table to be fed your Body and Blood! Jesus, we thank you and Trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
This is a special day - ST Gianna's feast day!
And St Louis de Montfort... he loved Our Lady and showed us how!
