Gift of hope

Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do.
I have not come to call the righteous to repentance but sinners. – Luke 5: 32

Today on the Saturday after Ash Wednesday, we learn how awesome God’s love is towards us.

The Church’s readings for today from IS 58:9B-14 and LK 5:27-32 fill us with the great gift of hope.

This is indeed the good news of the Gospel – to hope to see God’s goodness in this life and to live forever with Him when our earthly life is over.

Isaiah tells us that if we turn away from doing evil and turn to the Lord’s ways,

Then the LORD will guide you always
and give you plenty even on the parched land.
He will renew your strength,
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring whose water never fails.

In the same way, Christ gives us great hope that He casts no one aside, but His love reaches out to all, especially those who are in most need of His mercy.

HOW AWESOME IS OUR GOD!

Today is a great day to rejoice and hope for God’s mercy and saving light.

We trust that as we turn again to Him, as the great physician of our souls and our lives, He will speedily come to our aid, and heal us, and fill us with all the graces we need to live a life that is renewed in His love and worthy of His promises.

Prayer: We turn to You o Lord, come once again to us and heal us and bless us, for we trust in Your love.

AMEN.

 

Always and Forever,

To The Lamb.

With all my love.

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart – Dan Schutte
