Another weekend has come and gone. I hope you are all rested and ready for another week. Some of us will be greatly challenged in the days to come. Remember to offer all you are to Jesus and especially offer your trials redemptively for those you love, for those who burden you and most especially for the conversion of the world, “Oh my God, I offer this trial for love of you, for the conversion of sinners and in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” Amen. Living lives of humility and redemptive suffering unites us with Jesus on the Cross and in so doing, we can share in some small way (recognizing ourselves as finite beings) his great sacrifice. As we do so and grow in holiness, we hope that when we meet Him face to face, that we will then transition from this life and live with Him forever as eternal beings, “Dearly beloved, we are now the sons of God; and it hath not yet appeared what we shall be. We know, that, when he shall appear, we shall be like to him: because we shall see him as he is. And every one that hath this hope in him, sanctifieth himself, as he also is holy.” 1 John 3: 3-5
Seek and you shall find, ask and you shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you. May God be with you today with each beat of you heart.
God Love you,

I agree and thank you for the encouraging words. I am being challenged every day. My mother in law lives with us and it has not been easy. There’s always an argument if something is suggested. I try my best to love and not mad or resentful. To be patient with her- her words to her friends about me are so hateful. I know that our Lord is asking me to bare this with patience but it is not easy. Thank you again for your encouragement and reminder to bare all with love. Patti
I will pray for you. My life too is filled with great challenges. Sometimes as I close my eyes and try to grab onto the little resolve I have left as the day closes, yet, I remind myself of the Lord. How did He feel on the Cross; betrayed by so many? Not at all, but rather a loving Lord forgiving unto his death. What a model of perfection we have in the One of whom we strive to be like, to live like, to whom we mold our lives in conformity of He who is Love.
Thank you Greg I appreciate the reply yes he is love and loved us to his death – and said forgive them they know not what they do. I should have this engraved in my heart!
