Easter 4 – A mother says to her child: “Take, eat, this is my body; take, drink, this is my blood.” Motherhood gives us a glimpse of the Good Shepherd. Every Christian vocation feeds on God and leads others to God.
Ascension – Jesus returns to the spiritual realm where he came from. He is present to us through the Spirit that dwells in our hearts. May the eyes of your heart be enlightened so you can live your daily life from Jesus’ eternal perspective.
Even ticks and mosquitos were created with a purpose. Of course you have a purpose. All Christians are living stones, chosen and precious. Our purpose is to reflect and radiate the love of God to everyone around us. [AUDIO]
The Holy Spirit “mothers” every Christian and gives us direct access to the throne of God. Listen to the Spirit and cooperate with his work. “Can a mother forget her infant? Even should she forget, I will never forget you.” [AUDIO]
Jesus ascends so He can send us the Holy Spirit. We cannot see the Spirit but we see the effects of His work all around us. Just like the Holy Spirit, mothers work in the background for the success of others. In the same way, the Spirit wants us to be fully alive and prepares us for the coming of the Lord. Let us be grateful for mothers and for the Holy Spirit.
