(Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus)
The LORD spoke through the Prophet Ezekiel saying, “I myself will pasture my sheep; I myself will give them rest, says the Lord GOD. The lost I will seek out, the strayed I will bring back, the injured I will bind up, the sick I will heal, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy, shepherding them rightly.” Ez_34:11-16
The Lord, Jesus, in telling the Pharisees a parable, said, “‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.” Lk_15:3-7
You know what, beloved? There is such an immense amount of love there by our God for us, that we can’t even imagine it. Messed up? God forgives. Lost? God finds. Hurt? God heals. All we need do is believe. Call out for His help, His mercy, His love! It’s always there!
And then, pass it on!
