06-07-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 7, 2014
John the evangelist concludes his Gospel saying, “There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written.”  Jn 21:20-25

The Gospel writers pulled little pieces of things they remembered, or read from other writings about Jesus and compiled them into stories that were directed to the Jews or the Gentile audiences.  Some of those stories perfectly agreed with one another, while others had slight variations depending on the writer’s frame of mind.

How did Jesus fulfill the prophesies of the Old Testament?  How did Jesus give us signs that He is truly divine, the Son of God?  What was the significance of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus?  What was the whole point of the descent of the Holy Spirit and Pentecost?  In those few questions alone, volumes and volumes have been written.  What does Jesus mean to us, today?  Is He just a fairy tale of the past?  Or is Jesus truly Living in our hearts?  Is the Holy Spirit guiding our decisions and leading our lives?
Lots of questions for thought!
Lots of room to grow!
