Readings for October 13th, 2019

       We are gathered to celebrate the Eucharist. The word Eucharist means "thanksgiving".In celebrating the Eucharist we are giving thanks to God for all the blessings He has conferred on us especially through Jesus, His son.
        Let us call to mind that we haven't always shown gratitude to God for His goodness to us, nor have we always shown gratitude to others for their goodness to us.
        Lord Jesus, you are slow to anger and rich in mercy. Lord, have mercy.
        You do not treat us according to our sins nor repay us according to our faults. Christ, have mercy.
        Your love is everything upon those who revere you. Lord, have mercy.

Reflections

Gratitude

Once there was a young man
who had never thought of donating blood.
But then his father got very ill and was hospitalized.
One day the son was sitting by his father's bedside
as he was getting a blood transfusion.
As he watched the blood flowing into his father's veins
he suddenly realized that someone has donated the blood that was now keeping his father alive.
Straightaway he made up his mind to become a donor,
and he was good as his word.
Many are willing to avail of the generosity of others,
but few are willing to give something back.
This is why gratitude is so important.
It makes us want to give something back.

Why Do Cathothics Do That?

Mary brings us to the heart of her son

Jesus so loved His mother that his last thoughts on the Cross were of her. He gave her to us as our own mother and wants us to honor her. Since Mary is rightly to be regarded as the way by which we are led to Christ, the person who encounters Mary cannot help but encounter Christ likewise.

For her “yes.” Without fully understanding what God intended, she unhesitatingly agreed to become his mother. Her “yes” made it possible for God to become human and be crucified for our salvation. Following her example means saying “yes” to whatever God asks. 

For her sacrifice. Wouldn’t you forever be grateful to someone who gave up her child so that you and your loved ones might live? Mary loved her amazing child and she experienced unspeakable heartache as he was sacrificed for us. 

Praying the Rosary regularly reminds us of the life of Jesus and the desire of the Mother to bring us close to his heart.
