What a beautiful day it was, May 1, 2011: The beatification of Blessed John Paul II; Divine Mercy Sunday. The Psalms expressed this theme so many ages ago: “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.” Psalm 23:6. This promise is to all of us who choose to say ‘yes’ to our God. The Holy Spirit becomes powerful in us. Our hearts are filled with the freedom of faith and trust. Fears and worries flow away in the precious blood of Jesus, our savior. He has now become not only our savior but our shepherd-the one who finds us when we wander off; the one who leads us to safe pastures and watches over us night and day. Beyond all this, He shows us the Father’s intended path for our individual lives and walks along with us. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives!
Holy Spirit Impression-from Helen
Thankfully, gratefully and with a heart open to my love, come to my altar ready to receive and grow. Place your fondest hopes and dreams there with expectant faith. All that is good and right for you and the others in your life will blossom, grow and come to fruition. A farmer tilling his fields knows they will be subject to insects, mauraders, storms, droughts, etc. but his patience and hard work will be rewarded. So it is with you. Life’s cares and unexpected upsets will beset you, but keep those dreams alive. Within my will you will conquer and live the abundant life.
Prayer: Lord, bless me with your mercy and goodness. Be with me and help me to walk always in the Father’s will. Amen.
