10-13-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 13, 2014
St. Paul said, “For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.”  Gal 4:22-24, 26-27, 31-5:1

One of our parishioners recently asked me why at the beginning of the Creation of the earth and all the people therein, many angels chose to leave heaven behind to be with Satan instead.  It doesn’t make any sense that they would leave perfection to be with and in something so inferior.

You see, God gave us all the free will to make our own choices, angels as well as people.  We might ask the same question about Adam and Eve’s choice to distrust God and risk the loss of Eden.  Temptation by “the deceiver” is his greatest weapon.  Find a crack in our armor to bring in the temptations of “it’s better,” “it’s mine,” “it’s for wealth, or fame, or power,” and we tend to jump on it; not realizing that we’re actually leaving THE BEST behind.  No, the world often doesn’t make any sense to those who have left it based on their FAITH to believe the TRUTH.  God IS the Best!  And when we can come to that realization, we will never want to submit ourselves to the slavery that Jesus freed us from again (the slavery to sin, that the evil one wants so much for us to fall into).  We are ALREADY Free, beloved!

Praise be God and our Lord Jesus Christ
for that freedom!
