Monday Musings - November 26, 2012 - Is It Time To Change?

Monday Musings


If God used Balaam’s donkey to get that prophet’s attention, I guess he can use me to get yours. May these periodic Monday Musings generate fruitful discussion and faithful change.
 
 
Spend a few minutes reflecting on these fundamental Truths of your Catholic Faith:

 
Is It Time To Change?
 
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?

  1. Yes, it is time to change. But how many priests from the pulpit urge their parishioners to stop in for a short visit to the Blessed Sacrament or to make the sign of the cross when they pass a Catholic Church. Sadly, many Catholics today have no idea what our faith means.
