Food for the journey

Monday, March 11, 2019 When did we see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you drink? The disciples are confused. St. Mother Teresa said that the reason she picked up the dying on the streets of Calcutta was because she saw Christ in them. She couldn’t let them die alone on the streets. She gave them a home to die with dignity and love. Some were amazed because they didn’t even think they deserved her help. She and all her sisters brought love, understanding and comfort to everyone they helped. She said a smile was the beginning of love. Her food for this difficult and exhausting journey to help others was the Eucharist. She told all of her sisters that they would never be able to help anyone if they didn’t get the grace of Christ in Eucharistic Adoration. They ‘sat with Jesus’ for an hour every day. It didn’t matter if they were tired, they made Jesus a priority. This Lent, give Jesus 15 minutes of your time every day, in silence or reading Scripture. You will be amazed by the grace, love and peace you will receive each day. Just start your day with Jesus and you can do anything. Can you be a Teresa to someone today? Readings for March 11, 2019

Gotta have heart

A good heart produces good. A good tree produces good fruit. A disciple is a good student that not only sits at the feet of the teacher but becomes like the teacher. We can only become the best version of ourselves by emulating the teacher. The saying that ‘you are what you eat’ is very true. What you put in matters! What are you doing to water your faith and grow in love? Lent begins in a few days. We can enjoy Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) but then we need to dig in and make some changes. Resolution Reset. You probably had goals at the beginning of the year. Did you evaluate the areas in your life that you could improve? It’s much easier to eat well and exercise when you have positive influences. Your attitude matters. That’s the spiritual side of the equation. What can you do to improve your spirit and mood? Confession (get that beam out of your eye) and spiritual reading can help to lighten the load. Read the daily Readings, get an app or join a bible/book study. Even better—get a friend to join you! Getting someone to walk with you is Jesus’ prescription. In Mark 6, he sent them out in pairs and said to keep it simple but do it! It changes everything!

Kubicki – Aspostleship for Prayer changed the monthly intentions to Evangelization (used to be Mission) because our mission is everywhere, even our own neighborhoods. Pope Francis says […]
