(St. Francis of Assisi)
Jesus sent seventy-two of his disciples out on their first missionary trip.
They were to proclaim the “Kingdom” that Jesus taught:
a Kingdom of God’s love for ALL of his Children.
And yet, He warned them that there would be people and whole towns who
would not accept them. Too many prejudices built up in their minds would
close them off from even listening. It would almost be like offering candy
to a baby, who refused it because she didn’t like the color of the wrapper.
And yet, Jesus told them, “Whoever listens to you listens to me.” Lk 10:13-16
And in turn, ‘whoever listens to me is listening to my Father.’
Are we listening, beloved?
His Word is all around us. Sometimes it might be a strain
to catch it between the noise of the world, but listen closely dear.
For you are here, searching and seeking His Love!! : )
And there it is – in YOUR heart!
May God bless you abundantly and always!
You ARE His beloved!
