Greetings on this the Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Easter
Readings: Acts 12:24—13:5a; PS 67:2-3, 5, 6 and 8; Jn 12:44-50
I came into the world as light,
so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness.
I brought home some Easter Lilies remaining from the parish Easter celebration.
Planting is tricky here. The sun is blistering hot and humidity ranges from very dry to soaking wet.
If I do it right, I will have a cluster of eight lilies to enjoy next springtime.
The Church grew by way of worshiping the Lord, alms giving (relief giving) and fasting.
In that healthy environment the Holy Spirit is able to communicate to us clearly and forcefully the will of the Father. And being so attentive to the Lord, great adventure and the salvation of souls far and wide.
Whoever believes in me believes not only in me
but also in the one who sent me,
and whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.
And if anyone hears my words (should obey because) I know that his (Father) commandment is eternal life.
Go therefore! Do worship the Lord, do alms giving (relief giving) and do fasting.
Let us not tarry here. We know rejecting truth is living in darkness and heaps judgment upon ourselves. Let us try. Just try. The Holy Spirit will aid you!
Jesus cried out and said,
So what I say, I say as the Father told me.
Go therefore, worshiping the Lord, alms giving (relief giving) and fasting.
Peace be with you,
