St. Paul of the Cross
Dear Family of Mary!
I am traveling today, but just wanted to send a short greeting. The reading for Holy Mass today is a beautiful promise from Jesus:
Jesus said to his disciples:
"Gird your loins and light your lamps
and be like servants who await their master's return from a wedding,
ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those servants
whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.
Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself,
have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them.
And should he come in the second or third watch
and find them prepared in this way,
blessed are those servants." (Luke 12:35-38)
Jesus promises that if we stay alert and ready to serve Him throughout our lives, He will welcome us and seat us among His beloved, and serve us! This is incredible.
And I was thinking that Our Lady through her main message has really given us a way to remain alert and ready to serve Jesus. Prayer, conversion, fasting, the Bible, Holy Mass, and a life of the Sacraments! How ready and alert we will be if we live Our Lady's messages.
So, today, we can thank Mother Mary for guiding us so well on the way to her Son!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
