02-19-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 19, 2015
Moses said, “Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him.” Dt 30:15-20

YES!  There we have it!
All the way back to Moses and even to the very creation of humanity, we are a people of CHOICE!  So when we say we are Pro-Choice, we are agreeing with the very essence of our existence!  And in that agreement, then, we can either choose LIFE or death.  Moses recommends choosing Life.

And the way we choose LIFE is by loving and heeding the voice of God.  So whenever there is death involved – that’s not the best choice – in all it’s different colors, in what the world and the media glorifies, whenEVER there is death, it is NOT God’s choice, it’s not His “will.”

Jesus said, “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Lk 9:22-25

So maybe that cross is getting rid of our jealousies and hatreds (death causers).  Maybe it’s eating a little better or less (life givers).  Maybe it’s going a little out of our way to help others (life providers).  And maybe it’s praying a little more, reading some Scripture, going to Church – getting to know Jesus a little more intimately (all life enhancing).

It’s LENT, beloved!
Time to pick up our crosses and CHOOSE LIFE!
