"prayer and ministry of the Word/wonderful LIGHT/ Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the LIFE!"
The kids did the preparing of the food for mom...
You are "a chosen race, a royal priesthood,
a holy nation, a people of his own,
so that you may announce the praises" of him
who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. I Peter 2:9
Yes, there is nothing more wonderful than to see your children embracing the Truth that the Church calls us to in being open to LIFE and then raising them as LIGHTS!
Jesus, we are so blessed to share You in Word and Sacrament with Family each Sunday! Reading the first reading from Acts today and envisioning the disciples... "we shall devote ourselves to prayer
and to the ministry of the word." How I burn to do this in each new day! As Father reminded us, too. "May others see in you Christ when they look upon you and the life you are living." I see Christ in the new little ones in our family and how the older ones welcome them and care for them and love them. That reveals the beauty of the "wonderful LIGHT". He allows that LIFE to go down the narrow path carrying/dragging our most Cherished Cross to eternal LIFE! Jesus, is the Way, if only we embrace The Truth we find through His Bride, The Church! Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
All of my married daughters have a baby daughter now. LOVE to see them so fulfilled and peaceful when they hold them close!

“The future,” he writes, “is not in fact unchangeably set, and the image which the children saw is in no way a film preview of a future in which nothing can be changed. Indeed, the whole point of the vision is to bring freedom onto the scene and to steer freedom in a positive direction. The purpose of the vision is not to show a film of an irrevocably fixed future. Its meaning is exactly the opposite: it is meant to mobilize the forces of change in the right direction.”
“Those who expected exciting apocalyptic revelations about the end of the world or the future course of history are bound to be disappointed. […]
“What remains was already evident when we began our reflections on the text of the ‘secret’: the exhortation to prayer as the path of ‘salvation for souls’ and, likewise, the summons to penance and conversion.”
In other words, the message of Fatima is not that people should be concerned with predictions, but that they should draw closer to God.
