Humbly submit your will to God (Thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through Mary and Joseph.
Jesus proposed a parable to the crowds.
“The Kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man
who sowed good seed in his field.
While everyone was asleep his enemy came
and sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off.
When the crop grew and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well.
The slaves of the householder came to him and said,
‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field?
Where have the weeds come from?’
He answered, ‘An enemy has done this.’
His slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’
He replied, ‘No, if you pull up the weeds
you might uproot the wheat along with them.
Let them grow together until harvest;
then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters,
“First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning;
but gather the wheat into my barn.”’” MT 13:24-30
In this parable Jesus teaches us that, “The refusal of the householder to allow his slaves to separate the wheat from the weeds while they are still growing is a warning to the disciples not to attempt to anticipate the final judgment of God by a definitive exclusion of sinners from the kingdom. In its present stage it is composed of the good and the bad. The judgment of God alone will eliminate the sinful. Until then there must be patience and the preaching of repentance.” Scripture Scholar for the New American Bible
God calls us to be transformed, not judge incorrectly, and be patient with others while preaching repentance. For who among us does not sin, have faults and need repentance. God has spoken to us recently about this through Our Lady of Fatima and St. Faustina. Our Lady of Fatima’s message was to pray the rosary for peace and to pray for unrepentant sinners for God’s mercy is endless. So many people are not repenting and this takes away the power of the cross. We must get the Good News out to everyone. Many are going to hell for sins of the flesh.
Second, Jesus speaks to St. Faustina about His ocean of mercy. After we failed Him, He goes even further with His mercy by giving us Himself in Jesus Christ, the Word made Flesh. The Blood and Water flow from His side for the sake of sinners. God’s love and mercy are bigger than any sin and have conquered the devil. This is the message of comfort and compassion we must get out to a suffering world, starting in ourselves and in our homes.
Today’s challenge: Repent and trust. God’s love and mercy are endless. Never give up and keep coming back to Him. Ask God in prayer who we need to forgive or for an encounter with a homeless person who has no hope. May we be that hope for the hopeless in our homes and on the streets.
Be a servant, become a saint!
