Saturday mornings with Jesus

FullSizeRender (9)

During my summer in Mexico, I made my way through Sister Marie Paul Curley’s book Soul of Christ. I am taking this Saturday morning to share the little pearls I have learned from this book.

Passion of ChristMass at times can become very much routine for the average Catholic who has not had religious formation past First Communion and Confirmation.  A way in which we can become more deliberate with our faith is to make frequent visits to be with Jesus. Learning to be him makes Mass and Communion intimately special.

strengthen me: The Eucharist offers us memorial, banquet, and presence as a way of strengthening us. Christ found strength in being obedient to the Father. We find strength in him. This strength is not found in a definitive way – Sacrament and Eucharist! Here’s a pearl of wisdom “…our suffering is infused with the hope of the resurrection, with the certainty that we are accompanied and loved, with the conviction that whatever we undergo will somehow bring new life – even if we cannot see it now” (p.76).
