This weekend we celebrate the Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The readings this weekend focus on trusting in God. In the First Reading, the Prophet Isaiah speaks of comfort to the Jewish people who were in exile in Babylon. In the Second Reading, Paul tells the Corinthian community to not make any judgment before the appointed time. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus reminds us that we cannot serve two masters. He tells us not to worry about tomorrow, to live today in the present and be appreciative with all that we have. Jesus calls us to discipleship to get our priorities in order. What are things in life that distract us from having a relationship with the Lord? Jesus reminds us that we are God’s precious children. We must put his future in the hands of God and pray only for the modest needs of today. As we prepare to start the season of Lent, let us Let Go, and Let God!
As Lent of 2017 is becoming a reality in our lives (Ash Wednesday, March 1st)…I would like to take this opportunity to ask you to consider spending one hour each week during Lent to visit Our Lord in the church. Trusting in the Sacred Heart of Jesus…many conversions, healings, and prayers-answered have been granted to those who invest their time with our Lord Jesus.
If you are in need of a positive change in your life and heart, then go to the Sacred Heart of Jesus beating for us under the veil of the Bread from Heaven! Come and Adore Him!
