"It is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard." Acts 4
Relating to the Apostles today in the first reading from Acts when they are asked not to speak in the name of Jesus and their response even when they were threatened? "It is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard." So true! I burn to share my story of how the Lord has touched me over and over... brought me into The Church and blessed me with each new day in my beloved Catholic Church! Blessed me with a good Catholic husband, who is my champion for LIFE and raising our children as LIGHTS! In having a daughter, who answered "yes" to her call to be a spouse of Christ. In the healings of both my 20 year old son from horrible brain cancer, and the healing of my newborn grandson, Patrick, born dead and brought back to life! Too much to hold in!!!
Lord, today you tell us in the Gospel to "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature." Mark 16... how I burn to do that, Lord. Please use my feeble attempts to share all that you have done for me and how unworthy I am, yet you love me with an eternal and unending and unconditional love! May I give without counting the cost so that when I leave this world all that I have given will be added unto me...
Yes, Lord! Jesus, I trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
It is Divine Mercy Sunday! May I return the Mercy I have been given to others most especially to those in my domestic Church/family. Bless-bless, Barbara Luke
