05-26-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

May 26, 2014
(St. Philip Neri, Priest)
Jesus said to his disciples:  “When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me.  And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.” Jn 15:26-16:4a

We too will testify, beloved, because the Holy Spirit dwells within us.  We will tell of the marvelous things Jesus has done in our lives.  And even when those lives had some rough times, we will tell how He saved us as well.  He always saves those who love Him, because He loves us so deeply.

St LydiaYears later, the disciples and St. Paul also testified the stories of their remembrance.  And there were some who listened intently to them.  And from their listening, they too became His disciples, zealous to testify their own stories of salvation.

There was “a woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth, from the city of Thyatira, a worshiper of God, who listened, and the Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what Paul was saying.”   Acts 16:11-15

Today is the day – we ‘remember’, Memorial Day.  We remember those who came before us and gave their lives to keep us free to worship our Lord and God.  We listened to their stories and we give thanks for the great love they shared.  Just as our Savior, Jesus Christ had done, FOR US!
