The Imitation of Christ - Thomas A Kempis (~1427)
Let us do the best we can, and as well as we can. It should not be from habit or necessity, but with reverential fear and affection that we receive the Body of our beloved Lord who comes to us. He invited us, and commanded this Sacrament to be. Therefore, our Lord will make up for whatever is lacking in us. Come, let us receive the Lord.  CBP, 1993
Theme
Listening
We are called to tell others about God and the quality of life in His kingdom. Those we tell may be responsive or apathetic. Jesus informed us that you are unable to persuade anyone who thinks they have all the answers. In reality, our very weakness and doubts can become strengths, since they teach us to trust God and rely on Him to show us where to go, what to say, and how to act.
Focus the Word, Susan Sayers, 1989

Have A Great Week!
