05-16-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

May 16, 2014
Jesus said, “In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.  If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.”   Jn 14:1-6

Sojourners in a foreign land.  This is how St. Paul refers to us in this earthly, worldly life.  This is not our true home.  And Jesus goes the next step in telling His disciples and us that HE will prepare a place for us in our TRUE homes – our dwelling place with God.  And He will take us there and reside with us forever.

Did you ever mistakenly try to make a home out of something or somewhere, a profession, or a job, or even a person, only to find something better, or have them fire you, or leave you all alone again?  THIS is NOT our true Home beloved!  It’s not a place, or a feeling, or comfort.  It’s not drugs or money or power or fame.

Our call in this life is to do the best we can with what we have, to help and love others, but never make them our gods or our homes.  Our home is coming.  We are preparing the way to make it back there – with God and with Jesus.  Listen to the Holy Spirit’s guidance and BE ready, for we will be there soon, beloved!  And we will be together, forever!
