Ordinary 29 – Do you sometimes feel broken? Whatever you are struggling with, God sees you, and knows you, and loves you. Sometimes we need to carry Broken Mary to realize who is carrying us. Have faith in God’s love for you!
Assumption – King David brought the Ark to Jerusalem. When Jesus has defeated the enemies Sin and Death, and is seated on the Throne, he welcomes the new Ark into the Hoy City, the new Jerusalem. You too receive the Bread of Life; you too are an ark.
Immaculate Conception – On our way to celebrate Jesus’ birth, we pause to celebrate Mary’s conception. Why?!? God had such a great gift that no one was pure enough to receive it. God helped Mary be ready. Advent is when God helps us get ready.
The Assumption of Mary teaches us three things: 1) Life is a journey 2) It has ups and downs 3) We don’t have to do it alone. Keep peddling!
Before you were conceived in your mother’s womb, God had a concept of you with him in Heaven for all eternity. Mary teaches us two things: 1) God’s plans are worth waiting for 2) All we have to do is say “Yes” to God and God will do the rest. [AUDIO]
