Readings for October 6th, 2019

       To serve God is not a duty but a privilege. The most important quality to bring to that service is love. Lord Jesus, you help us to give and not to count the cost.
        What spirit do we bring to our worship and service of God ?
        Lord Jesus, you help us to give and not to count the cost. Lord, have mercy.
        You help us to toil and not to seek for rest. Christ, have mercy.
        You help us to seek no reward except that of knowing that we do your will. Lord, have mercy.

Reflections

Towards the Beautiful Gate

I must be filled with joy if my feet are on the right road
and my face set towards the gate which is called beautiful, though I may fall many times in the mire and often in the mist go astray.
Far off, like a perfect pearl, one can see the City of God.
It is so wonderful that it seems as if
a child could reach it in a summer's day.
And so a child could.
But with me and such as me it is different.
One can realize a thing in a single moment,
but one loses it in the long hours that follow with leaden feet.
We think in terms of eternity,
but we move slowly through time.
       Oscar Wilde

Why Do Cathothics Do That?

Why do Catholics Need Faith?

“Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1)
Christians know that Jesus is our savior and our lives are in his hands.
We also know that by virtue of his suffering, death, and resurrection, we have hope of sharing in his glory in Heaven.
He said so. It is through faith that all the other virtues flow. Through faith we believe,
“For with God, nothing will be impossible.”
(Luke 1:37)
(Growing in Faith)
