I Devote Myself to God Today

I devote myself to God today to faithfully receive His eternal Love, in fact, His very Body and Blood which is Love, at every Eucharist, and to realize that His Love is always pure and active and seeking a fruitful return, and to be a channel for His Majestic Love such that the Holy Will of the Father may be done through me, His humble and undeserving creation, that this act of submission and faith will be, in fact, my act of true love for my dear God Who is pure, simple Spirit and Who is eternally capable of all things visible and invisible, but doing all things in the Light of True Love which is always Good.  And in all these things, I depend upon the merciful Love of Jesus Christ, the  intercession of my eternally Blessed Mother Mary, the Communion of Saints in Heaven, and the gifts and helps of the most Holy Spirit.  So help me, please God, to be your most faithful and adorable servant forever more, caressing and healing your wounds which are thrust upon you constantly, and which you receive lovingly and patiently. 

So help me, God. 

So help me, God. 

So help me, God.

Amen.

Catholic Nuns: Bearing Fruit That Will Last – Joy!

Sister Tracy, Daughter of St. Paul, 13 April 2013.  She went out weeping; she came back with shouts of joy, bringing her fruit with her. [cf, Psalm 126:6]

What a lovely smile. ūüôā

This is a¬†tribute to¬†my wonderful Catholic Christian religious Sisters in the world who give their entire life to Christ and who “bear fruit that will last.”¬† Shout out to Sister Tracy and the Daughters of St. Paul!

Jesus Christ said:¬† “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.¬†¬† This I command you, to love one another.”¬† [Gospel of John, 15:16-17, RSV Holy Bible]

The following is from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah chapter 54, RSV Holy Bible:

“Sing, O barren one, who did not bear;¬† break forth into singing and cry aloud,¬† you who have not been in travail!

For the children of the desolate one will be more  than the children of her that is married, says the LORD.

Enlarge the place of your tent,  and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out;  hold not back, lengthen your cords  and strengthen your stakes.

For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left,  and your descendants will possess the nations  and will people the desolate cities.

“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed;¬† be not confounded, for you will not be put to shame;¬† for you will forget the shame of your youth,¬† and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.

For your Maker is your husband,  the LORD of hosts is his name;  and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,  the God of the whole earth he is called.

For the LORD has called you  like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when she is cast off,  says your God.

For a brief moment I forsook you,  but with great compassion I will gather you.

In overflowing wrath for a moment¬† I hid my face from you,¬† but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,¬† says the LORD, your Redeemer.”

God Works Through the Most High Motherhood of Mary

Jesus Christ elevates His Mother Mary to a most high place in His Life and ours.  For from her flesh and from her motherhood, He came into this world to heal us and to give us the Light of Love.  Also, in a way similar to how He gives us Himself from the Father, He gives us Himself through His Mother, Mary.  And so, in Mary we recognize the pure goodness of Jesus Christ ever so clearly.

“I AM all Love for you Mama.”

In drawing close to Mary, we draw close to Jesus the Christ.¬† In becoming as a child of Mary, we recognize that we have already become adopted brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ in His glorified humanity where Love rules every aspect of our lives.¬† We find rest in her pure, joyful and grace-filled compassion and mercy.¬† In her smile, we see the Love and Mercy of God shining through, for she is very near to¬†Him.¬† He calls us through His Mother to Himself. She says, “I take you as my baby child, for the love of God works through me, and I am all “Yes” to Him who is all Love for you and for me. I love you so very much.”But,¬†the unfathomable Love and Beauty of God is far beyond even that which we are able to see in our Mother Mary.¬† Oh Loving Lord – you are the ultimate Essence of Beauty.¬† For you, may our hearts also resonate¬†like Mary’s “Yes!” and¬†be filled with JOY.
