Parish Hoedown

We ended the summer with a splendid family event at our parish.  The SS annual pig roast and square dance was a glorious way to end the summer and have Rose say farewell to her parish community.

SECOND DAY – JESUS LOVES YOU

"Am I convinced of Christ’s love for me, and mine for Him?  this conviction is like the sunlight which makes the sap of life rise and the buds of sanctity bloom.  This conviction is the rock on which sanctity is built.”

“The devil may try use hurts of life, and sometimes our own mistakes, to make you feel it is impossible that Jesus really loves you, is really cleaving to you.  This is a danger for all of us.  And so sad, because it is completely opposite of what Jesus is really wanting, waiting to tell you…He loves you always, even when you don’t feel worthy.”

“Jesus loves you tenderly, you are precious to Him.  Turn to Jesus with great trust and allow yourself to be loved by Him.  The past belongs to His mercy, the future to His providence, and the present to His love.”

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
"Do not be afraid—you are precious to Jesus. He loves you.”

ASK FOR THE GRACE TO BE CONVINCED OF JESUS’ UNCONDITIONAL AND PERSONAL LOVE FOR YOU.

PRAYER TO BLESSED TERESA OF CALCUTTA:
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, you allowed the thirsting love of Jesus on the Cross to become a living flame within you, and so became the light of His love for all. Obtain from the heart of Jesus (here make your request). Teach me to allow Jesus to penetrate and possess my whole being so completely that my life, too, may radiate His light and love to others. Amen.
Immaculate Heart of Mary,
cause of our joy, pray for me.
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, pray for me.

FIRST DAY -- Know the Living Jesus
"Do you really know the living Jesus--not from books but from being with Him in your heart?"


"Am I convinced of Christ's love for me and mine for Him? This conviction is the rock on which sanctity is built. What must we do to get this conviction? We must know Jesus, love Jesus, serve Jesus. Knowledge will make you strong as death. We know Jesus through faith: by meditating on His Word in the Scriptures, by listening to Him speak through His Church, and through the intimate union of prayer."

"Seek Him in the tabernacle. Fix your eyes on Him who is the Light. Bring your hearts close to His Divine Heart and ask Him to grant you the grace of knowing Him."

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
"Don't search for Jesus in far lands. He is not there. He is close to you. He is in you."


ASK FOR THE GRACE OF AN INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS.

PRAYER TO BLESSED TERESA OF CALCUTTA:
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, you allowed the thirsting love of Jesus on the Cross to become a living flame within you, and so became the light of His love for all.
