Solemnity of St. Joseph

“Blessed are those who dwell in your house, 0 Lord; they never cease to praise you. ” (Psalm 84:4)

 

We are destined to be in Heaven with God. Once there, we will be in union with God’s love. He will fulfill us and incline us wholly to praise God for he is good himself and is all deserving of all glory and honor.

Have you taken the time out of your day to talk with God? Have you offered him praise for the love he has given in your life? Have you loved and served him like St. Joseph did?

Pray for the grace to see how God has blessed you with his unconditional love.

Sunday of the Fifth Week of Lent

 

“This voice did not come for my sake but for yours. Now is the time of judgment on this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself” (John 12:30-32)

 

As we come to the final days of our Lenten season, the Gospel of John helps to prepare us for Christ’s saving grace in Easter. Here, Jesus provides us with hope of salvation in his words, which foreshadow the death that He will endure. Not only will He die for our sins and suffer as we have through His humanity, but He will rise again in salvation to save humanity from our sin, in His divinity. As He remarks, He has not come for His sake, but for ours. He does all this for us, through the love of the Father, to save His beloved people, to give us hope in eternal life with Him.

Saturday of the Fourth Week of Lent

 

Today’s Gospel features a lot of people who doubt in Christ. People who heard the word of Christ doubted that this man could really be the Lord, and “some of them wanted to arrest him.” I think we can all say there have been times where we have doubted the power of Christ. I know in my own life I have questioned why certain things happened and asked where God was when I needed him. A beautiful Lenten goal is to trust more because it’s something we can all work on.

It would not be right to send this out on St. Patrick’s Day without a tribute to him as well. He is someone who trusted in God’s plan his entire life. After being enslaved at a young age, St. Patrick put his total trust in the Lord until he escaped. St. Patrick didn’t doubt that the Lord would help save him, and God delivered. During this Lenten season may we all be more like St. Patrick and put our whole trust in God. In the words of St. Patrick himself , “Christ be within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ inquired, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.”

Friday of the Fourth Week of Lent

 

”Let us see whether his words be true; let us find out what will happen to him. For if the just one be the son of God, he will defend him and deliver him from the hand of his foes. With revilement and torture let us put him to the test that we may have proof of his gentleness and try his patience. Let us condemn him to a shameful death; for according to his own words, God will take care of him. ” (Wisdom 2:17-20)

 

Christ fulfilled these words completely. He suffered because of our sins, and yet God the Father took care of Him. Jesus Christ truly died, and He truly rose.
Not even death and sin could hold back His love for us.

In thanksgiving for His love, let us love Him in return by turning away from our sins.

Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent

 

“I came in the name of my Father, but you do not accept me; yet if another comes in his own name, you will accept him.” (John 5:43)

 

Think of all the ideas, theories, philosophies, and laws in which you trust. All of these come from different people, and you trust them because these people have either proven their ideas to be true, or you believe they are true.

How about Jesus? Do you trust in Jesus? Why or why not? What could bar you from trusting in His message of love and mercy?
