A FINAL GEM!!!
“My boy,” a father advised his son. “Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you. For remember that you show courtesy to others not because they are gentlemen, but because you are!” I LIKE IT!!!
“WRITTEN THAT THE CHRIST WOULD SUFFER…AND RISE FROM THE DEAD.”
GOOD FRIDAY – A HORRENDOUS DEATH?
EASTER SUNDAY – RISEN FROM THE DEAD?
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? WHAT’S THE MEANING OF IT ALL?
THEY ARE ALL UTTERLY CONFUSED. THEY CANNOT UNDERSTAND
TODAY, JESUS HIMSELF EXPLAINS IT ALL.
It is called, “THE GOOD NEWS”.
And the message?
THE FINAL PROOF OF GOD’S LOVE & CARE FOR HIS CREATURES. DEATH ON A CROSS.
That is the message of every generation of CHRISTIANS. And we keep the message alive by giving it away!
THIS WAY, THE GOSPEL WILL NEVER DIE.
“Blessed are they who have never seen but believe”.
YOU ARE NOW MY WITNESSES!
NEXT SUNDAY IS VOCATIONS SUNDAY AND SO IN ADVANCE.
A PRIEST’S “THANK YOU.”
I never could complain Lord about my work for you
I find delight and meaning in the things a priest can do
There is joy in serving others and sharing in their trials
In quieting their heartaches and quickening their smiles
There is charity in listening, with a sympathetic ear
To distressed and lonely people, who need someone just to hear.
There is peace and understanding, that your way, not mine, is best.
That when I’ve done my utmost, your grace will do the rest.
I am more convinced and certain, the longer, Lord, I live
That every earnest priest receives, much more than he can give.
And so my heart is grateful, for your goodness, Lord, to me.
So please help me by your grace, to be what you want me to be.
AND TO END WITH A SMILE!
What major disease is associated with smoking? Premature death!
Hospitality is the art of making people feel at home when they wish they WERE at home!
A clergyman called on an elderly lady who was deaf. When she said she regretted that she couldn’t hear his sermons, he modestly and sympathetically said, “Oh, you don’t miss much”
So they tell me”, she said with a smile (NOT at St. Luke’s of course!”
A very young priest was giving instructions to a class of little girls. “You shouldn’t be watching TV & listening to pop music every night. What do yiu think Our Lady was doing- was she wasting her time? No! She was on her knees saying the Rosary!!!
