There are no ranks among the victors over death for libertines, religious freethinkers, and those who value pride and power over meekness, humility and love. Those who raise the banner of triumph, adorned with everlasting life, do so by the saving death of Christ.
Thoughts For Today
Are you saved? It’s a question that often confuses Catholics. The most common answer I hear is: “Well, I’m a good person, so I hope to get to heaven.” Ah … nope. Wrong answer.
Inaccuracies and distortions in thinking create a multitude of problems with self-esteem, motivation and relationships. This includes our relationship with God. The goal then, is learning to tell ourselves the truth.
It seems spiritual communion with the Lord Jesus has become the new norm. When I received the news in March that Mass in our Diocese would be suspended for the foreseeable future, my heart sank.
Do you long to return to the Mass? In Austria, we will be able to physically attend Mass from May 15th. While my initial reaction was one of joy, I started to question if there will be lasting changes in what I admit are often spiritually lazy ways.
