I WANT TO. BE CLEAN.

soulfood 010715

 

One day, in another town, a man came to Jesus covered with leprosy.  On seeing Jesus, the man bowed down to the ground, and said, “LORD, IF YOU WANT TO, YOU CAN MAKE ME CLEAN.”

Stretching out His hand, Jesus touched the man and said, “Yes, I want to.  Be clean.”  In an instant, the leprosy left him.

Then Jesus instructed him, “TELL THIS TO NO ONE.  BUT GO, AND SHOW YOURSELF TO THE PRIEST.  MAKE AN OFFERING FOR YOUR HEALING, as Moses prescribed; that will served as evidence for them.

From the Gospel of Luke 5: 12-16

Reflections:

  1.  When we ask for healing, do we humbly ask Him first if He wants to heal us?
  2. If healed, can we keep our excitement and thankfulness to ourselves?
  3. What did we offer to Him when we were once healed?

St. Raymond of Penafort, pray for us.

St. Raymond of Pennafort, Patron Saint of Canonists (Feast day – January 7) Born in Spain, St. Raymond was a relative of the King of Aragon. From childhood he had a tender love and devotion to the Blessed Mother. He finished his studies at an early age, and became a famous teacher. He then gave up all his honors and entered the Order of the Dominicans. St. Raymond was very humble and very close to God. He did much penance and was so good and kind that he won many sinners to God. With King James of Aragon and St. Peter Nolasco he founded the Order of Our Lady of Ransom. The brave religious of this Order devoted themselves to saving poor Christians captured by the Moors.  Read more…

Ask His will first,

GATHER THE FRAGMENTS

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, April 17, 2015

wisdom 041715

When Jesus raised His eyes and saw that a large crowd was coming to Him, He said to Philip, “Where can we buy enough food for them to eat?”  He said this to test him, because he Himself knew what he was going to do.

Philip answered Him, “Two hundred days’ wages worth of food would not be enough for each of them to have a little.”

One of His disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to Him, “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?”

Jesus said, “Have the people recline.”

Now there was a great deal of grass in that place.  So the men reclined, about five thousand in number.

Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were reclining, and also as much of the fish as they wanted.  When they had had their fill, He said to His disciples, “Gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted.”

So they collected them, and filled twelve wicker baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves that had been more than they could eat.

-From the Gospel of John 6: 1-15

Reflections:

*Are we still among those waiting for miracles so as to believe?

*Are we willing to be like that unknown boy ever ready to share what we have so that a miracle can happen?

*Do we not waste opportunities to become a miracle for others?

Saint of the Day:

St. Anicetus, pray for us.

 

Be the miracle,

Brother Mo
