Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B) • The leper was like a walking corpse. Jesus touched him and brought him back to life. What good is life if you have no purpose for living? The more we do, the busier we are, the less fulfilled we feel. God made you for a purpose: To know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in the next.
A Catholic funeral Mass reminds our loved ones that we are meant for Eternity. St. Damian and our parish Care Ministers remind the sick of their purpose and value. We need to be reminded regularly of our purpose. What do you focus on that interferes with knowing, loving, and serving God? This Lent, let Jesus bring you back to life.
(11 Feb 2018)
Point to Ponder: Which do you struggle with most right now: knowing God, loving God, or serving God?
Point to Discuss: How can I help my children (friends, neighbors, coworkers) to know, love, and serve God more?
Point for Action: Take a few minutes and reflect on your Lent in light of God's purpose for your life.
