Our Giving Of Thanks: Psalm 100:4

Psalm 100:4

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
    and his courts with praise!
    Give thanks to him; bless his name!

Praise and thanksgiving must be an integral part of everyone’s life. It must not be dependent upon the songs and encouragement of others, but an expression of the joy that is felt as a result of the goodness of the Lord. God’s children are to enter into His gates with a praise. They must be ready to offer thanks.

St. Theresa, Novena to the Little Flower of Lung Ailments.

I was a Freshman in High school, 9th grade only at Little Flower Catholic High School for Girls. I was researching as a Dear Friend, Bill has complication due to his lung transplant. Little did I know that the Patron Saint for Lung ailments is Saint Therese, “The Little Flower”!

She loved flowers and saw herself as the “little flower of Jesus,” who gave glory to God by just being her beautiful little self among all the other flowers in God’s garden. Because of this beautiful analogy, the title “little flower” remained with St. Therese.

Her inspiration and powerful presence from heaven touched many people very quickly. She was canonized by Pope Pius XI on May 17, 1925. Had she lived, she would have been only 52 years old when she was declared a Saint.

I will let fall a shower of roses.” Roses have been described and experienced as Saint Therese’s signature. Countless millions have been touched by her intercession and imitate her “little way.” She has been acclaimed “the greatest saint of modern times.” In 1997, Pope John Paul II declared St. Therese a Doctor of the Church – the only Doctor of his pontificate – in tribute to the powerful way her spirituality has influenced people all over the world.

Please say a Prayer for my Friend Bill who is and Lung Transplant Recipient. He has complications now, as him and I are comparing notes. Yes, Please say a prayer for me also! Thank you so!

Truth Through the Lord: Matthew 5:43-48

Matthew 5:43-48 ESV

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Today, pray that your family would turn to the true source of wisdom - God!:

Testing Your Faith: James 1: 2-6, 16-18

James 1:2-6, 16-18

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.

16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
