06-10-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 10, 2016
A voice said to Elijah, “Elijah, why are you here?”  He replied, “I have been most zealous for the LORD, the God of hosts.  But the children of Israel have forsaken your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to the sword.  I alone am left, and they seek to take my life.”   1_Kgs_19:9a,11-16

Why are you hiding in this cave, Elijah?  They’re trying to kill me, God, and I don’t want to die yet!

But wait just a minute.  Don’t you remember the Israelites chased by the Egyptians up to the Red Sea.  Don’t you remember the giant, Goliath who was taunting the Israelites?  Don’t you remember David and Absalom?

Yes Lord.  But what about the Jews in the holocaust?  What about the Christians in Rwanda and China?  What about all the martyred Saints?  Look what happened to them.

Oh, Elijah, they’re all right here with Me.  Don’t you see, there’s nothing they can do to you that Jesus hasn’t gone through.  There’s nothing they can do to you that can keep you away from me.  So keep on proclaiming. And keep on loving.  And keep on believing.  And there will be nothing that can stop you.  You are mine!  Now and forever!
