Show love for God.
to the Church
This thought is taken from the Prayer Booklet produced and distributed by the Province of The Immaculate Conception of the La Salette Missionaries of Brazil.
This, brothers and sisters is not as easy as it sounds. Look around and see those who have attached their dedication to the hierarchy of the Church, rather than to God. You see them standing by the side of the WAY, rather than following HIM.
Our Blessed Mother at LaSalette shows us where our dedication must find its attachment. "MY SON." "MY CHILDREN." Ah, brothers and sisters, as sons and daughters of Our Lady of La Salette as well as members of the community of those who know her well and love her beyond measure, let us contribute to the construction of the Church. That we can do only if we are totally dedicated to God, Himself, and no one else.
Belle and I work with Returning Catholics. They all say the same thing. They lost sight of God and got offended by the people of the Church.
You and we all now that Jesus got offended by the officials of the Temple. He taught us what it means to keep our eye on the ONE who is really in charge. Jesus died for us and proved Himself right and them, wrong. We may not be called to die for God because of our loyalty to Him, but we can't be too sure of that neither. Look at the Church goers in Nigeria. Thank you for "listening." Let's pray together today. It is the preparation for the Feast of the Holy Family. We have a lot to think about these days. Let's think about God most of all.
MONTRE TO AMOUR POUR DIEU. DEDIE-TOI A L'EGLISE.
Ce n'est pas facile. C'est beaucoup plus facile de s'accorder si bien avec le cure et quand lui n'est pas la, de jurer en employant le Saint Nom de Jésus.
Ce n'est qu'une petite pensée qui m'a passe par la tete quand j'ai vu la reflection pour aujourd'hui dans le petit bouquin des Laïcs brésiliens. Je vous invite a passe quelques instants en silence avec cette pensée en vue.
MUESTRA TU AMOR DE DIOS -- DEDIQUE-TE
A LA SANTA IGLESIA.
Si, hermanos y hermanas, debemos dedicar nos a Dios, no al cura. Debemos seguir el ejemplo de Jesús. El no andaba bien con los oficiales de el Templo, pero nunca olvido su Misión por falta de foco en la voluntad de su Padre, y el nuestro, Dios todo poderoso y amor total.
