Give them some food yourselves

Greetings on this the Memorial of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, Religious
Readings:1 Jn 4:7-10; PS 72:1-2, 3-4, 7-8; Mk 6:34-44
Notes: Today we meet Elizabeth Ann Seton who was a loving Shepherdess.

Reflection

Elizabeth Ann Seton had no extraordinary gifts. She was not a mystic or stigmatic. She did not prophesy or speak in tongues. She had two great devotions: abandonment to the will of God and an ardent love for the Blessed Sacrament. She wrote to a friend, Julia Scott, that she would prefer to exchange the world for a “cave or a desert.” “But God has given me a great deal to do, and I have always and hope always to prefer his will to every wish of my own.” Her brand of sanctity is open to everyone if we love God and do his will.

First reading
Beloved, let us love one another,
because love is of God;
everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.

Responsorial Psalm
Lord, every nation on earth will adore you.

Alleluia Verse
The Lord has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor
and to proclaim liberty to captives.

Gospel Portion
The Good Shepherd fed the people with food for the body, heart and soul.
He picked a shepherdess, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, to do likewise.

He picks you too.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
