01-29-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 29, 2016
They say, idle hands are the devil’s workshop.  Today we hear the story of David and Bathsheba.   While his army was out fighting the battles, King David was taking a siesta and lounging around on the roof.   One thing leads to another.  And before you know it you’re in some pretty hot water.  But, no problem if you’re the king.  Unfortunately, King David again forgot all about his God.  And instead of finding some kind of amicable solution to the problem of Bathsheba’s pregnancy, David simply eliminated the conflict: Bathsheba’s husband Uriah . . .

The next morning David wrote a letter to Joab which he sent by Uriah.  In it he directed: “Place Uriah up front, where the fighting is fierce.  Then pull back and leave him to be struck down dead.” 2_Sm_11:1-4a,5-10a,13-17

The temptations of the world are all to easily succumbed to, beloved.  That’s why we have our practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  It’s our spiritual exercise, so that when those temptations do come, we may be a little stronger in will to resist.   Lent’s coming soon, too, beloved.  Time to start thinking about how we are going to exercise that beautiful gift of will-power that God so blessed us with, so that we too can be strong.  Pray for the help of the Holy Spirit.  And ask God to strengthen us through His Son, Jesus, who knows all too well the struggles we’re going through.
