Is It Time To Change?
(Originally posted November 11, 2012)
[Spend a few minutes reflecting on these fundamental Truths of your Catholic Faith:]
God loves you!
He made you in His image and likeness.
He wants to spend eternity with you!
But He will not force Himself or His plan on you.
He invites you to become a saint - to become holy as He is holy.
You must freely choose whether or not to accept His invitation.
He longs to be one with you right now during your earthly journey - physically uniting Himself (Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity) with you every time you receive Him in Holy Communion.
He remains physically present in the Sacred Hosts that are reserved in the tabernacles of His churches and in the chapels of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration – waiting there every day, 24 hours a day, 365 days of every year for your visit and adoration.
He longs to see you, hear your voice, talk to you, console you, strengthen you, heal you, teach you, touch your heart, stir your soul, transform you and love you.
None of us deserve to be loved like this!
But our God deserves all our love. He deserves everything we have – not just an occasional thought or glance.
Yet, most of us give Him little or no attention during our daily lives. Many of us drive or walk by His earthly residence without ever thinking of stopping in and visiting Him!
Is it time to change our unloving ways?
