Daily reflection _ it is more blessed to give than receive


It is more blessed TO GIVE
than TO RECEIVE
Bringing warmth and comfort into everything you do,
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
In today's first reading from the Book of Wisdom we read the following. "For from the greatness and the beauty of created things their original author, is seen by analogy." Knowledge is a powerful thing! Today the church honors St.Frances Xavier Cabrini. Mother Cabrini founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart. She wanted frank, dynamic women with bright, smiling faces. Pope Francis frequently notes that religious minded people should have happy faces. Mother Cabrini even when in poor health maintained a cheerful countenance. She gave ready witness to her faith in the Good News by putting on a smile. St. Cabrini in her weakness could move mountains. She had a joyful spirit even during difficult times.
Let us remember the words from scripture: It was not you who chose me, says, the Lord,/but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit,/ fruit that will last. We too need to life up to this call from Jesus Christ.
Points to Pray and Ponder: I would like to share these words of blessing that was passed on to me by someone special:
For bringing warmth and comfort into everything you do,
For finding time to add an extra touch of kindness too,
For patience in the midst of busy hours with little rest,
For taking pride in all you do and giving it your best,
May you be forever blessed.
May you pass it on too!
