02-04-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 4, 2014
King David’s army achieved their goal by ridding the kingdom of the enemy leader, who also happened to be – David’s son.  When David heard of the death of his son, he wept:  “My son Absalom! My son, my son Absalom!  If only I had died instead of you, Absalom, my son, my son!”  2 Sm 18:9 -19:3

Funny, when you become a father, you come to understand the meaning of unconditional love.  And then you might have a tiny glimpse of the enormous unconditional love God has for Jesus and Jesus has for us, beloved!

A thousand years later a high ranking Temple official named Jairus sought out Jesus for another example of that unconditional love of a father;  Seeing him (Jesus), he fell at his feet and pleaded earnestly with him, saying, “My daughter is at the point of death. Please, come lay your hands on her that she may get well and live.”  Mk 5:21-43  Keeping in mind that the Synagogue leaders, the Pharisees, Scribes and Sadducees were pretty much all against Jesus.  But love always trumps attitudes, even when it might cost one’s job!
