Just a Thought – June 15th – 16th
As we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Trinity, I offer a suggestion for all of us.
As we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Trinity, I offer a suggestion for all of us. Our Responsorial Psalm reminds us of the beauty and power of God’s Holy Name. “O Lord, our God, how wonderful your Name in all the earth.”
Can I suggest that in this coming week we strive to find some time, even a minute or two, to simply pray the Holy Name of “JESUS”. A dear priest friend suggested this to me many, many years ago and I can’t tell you the feeling I have simply by saying, really praying, “JESUS”!
Last week I suggested a challenge for all of us to see how we respond to God’s love? Do we fully understand that God loves us enough to be there with us every second of every minute of every single day?
Take that a step further, how do we feel when we pray God’s holy name? Think back and I am sure we can all recall a time when we seemingly were at our wit’s end, we said a prayer and somehow, we felt better. God happens, He is always available 24/7, to love and help us as often and as many times we call upon His Name.
In our second reading from St. Paul, we recall his words telling us that even when in doubt, in pain, confusion, whatever; we have been justified by faith, and have that inner peace with God through Jesus, His Son. We have been redeemed by His blood, present every time we receive eucharist, so in love with us, He died for you and me.
Let our alleluia’s ring out within our hearts and as we thank God, Father, Son and Spirit. God who is, who was, and who is to come. Can we all say, “Amen.”
God bless you and yours. Have a Blessed week. Pray for our homebound and sick. Thanks. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO ALL OUR FATHERS.
