10-07-13 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

(Our Lady of the Rosary)
Two ‘rescue’ stories today, both connected to the most IMPORTANT ONE.
1. In the midst of a stormy sea in a wave tossed boat, Jonah was tossed into the raging water, and the storm broke.  But Jonah was swallowed up by a big fish.
After Jonah prayed for 3-days and nights, God bid the fish
to deliver Jonah alive on the shore.  Jon 1:1–2:1-2, 11
Jonah prayed, “From the midst of the nether world I cried for help,
and you heard my voice.
”  Jon 2:3, 4, 5, 8
2. Jesus also tells a parable about a man who was stripped, beat, robbed
and ignored by several people passing by, except for one “good” Samaritan who
dressed his wounds and delivered him from certain death.  Lk 10:25-37
3. Both stories connect to the most IMPORTANT event in the history of the world,
the passion and death of Jesus Christ, who was delivered
from actual death, after 3-days in a tomb, in order
to prove to us that there is eternal life after worldly death.
Leaving us with the question – Will we just be cold passers-by,
or will we believe and thus be delivered ourselves
into the loving arms of our God and Father?
Jesus will be waiting to welcome us!
