Sunday Readings for April 22nd , 2018

          OF ALL THE IMAGES we have of Jesus, one of the loveliest is that of the Good Shepherd. It was Jesus Himself who used it.
          How well do we trust and how closely do we follow the Good Shepherd?
         Lord Jesus, you are our Shepherd with whom we want for nothing. Lord, have mercy.
         You guide us along the path of eternal life. Christ, have mercy.

Working with Love

       All work is empty save when done with love. And what is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth. It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house.
        If you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better than you should leave your work, and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms from those who work with joy. For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half of man’s hunger. And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distills a poison in the wine.
       Work is love made visible.
        ~~~Kahlil Gibran~~~
