LET US DRAW FROM THIS SOURCE DIVINE that always overflows and never runs out.
With everlasting love I have loved you and drawn you to myself.
She has listened to her good angel, and her good angel has led her to Jesus.
Look at the little birds of heaven
they neither sow nor reap.

Multiplication of the loaves and the fishes.

This morning Fr. Lawrence asked us to sit down as he read the Gospel account of the multiplication of the loaves and the fishes. We are lower than the angels, he explained. The detail of asking the crowd to sit down on the grass was Christ's way of helping us realize that as we prepare for receiving Him in the Eucharist we need to recognize our lowliness and acknowledge our total dependence upon Him.
Ask the Lord
always ask
ask again
The Lord loves to fill  
those who pray!

Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament

Easter Vigil, April 7, 2012

Lord, open to me the holy house that your love has prepared for me. Turgis.
Note: The word bercail means sheepfold, so the meaning is perhaps more intimate, more like home than house; it is referring of course to the church, the Body of Christ. Also there is a small printing error in the card ~ ma should have been m'a.  I love the card because it recalls the promises in John 10 that Jesus is both the shepherd and the door. He is the true shepherd to whom the doorkeeper opens the door (John 10:3). He is also the door itself (John 10:9).
