06-04-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 4, 2016
(Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
Finding their son after three days of searching, Mary said to Jesus, “Son, why have you done this to us?  Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety.”  And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me?  Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”  But they did not understand what he said to them.  He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart.   Lk_2:41-51

Funny, the incredible anxiety we have when we’ve lost someone we really care about.  And then there’s the irony that the lost person was never really lost anyway (in their own minds).  They knew where they were all along.  They were in the toy aisle playing, they were in the temple chatting, they were in the field that all the other sheep had not yet grazed in.  Jesus would later speak about the lost sheep (as we heard yesterday).  Funny how things all come around in the end.  When He was young, Jesus WAS the lost sheep – to His parents.  And when he got older he spoke of how He himself would leave all the others to find that lost one.  And we’ve all lived those same experiences.  And we all, just like Mary, keep all those things in our hearts.  That’s called growth!
