12-02-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

December 2, 2016
The Prophet Isaiah encouraged, “On that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book;  And out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see. The lowly will ever find joy in the LORD,”  Is_29:17-24

Between all the warnings and calls to come back to the Lord, while the people of Israel and Judah were slowly being overtaken by foreign nations, Isaiah will insert a picture of hope.  Today and throughout this season of Advent, we will constantly be reminded of our Hope in God – when we stay faithful to Him.  Advent is a time of conversion and a time of refreshment.  “Turn away from sin” John the Baptist retorts.  And we will find the Joy that the Lord is consistently offering us. Stay in the Word of Jesus and we will learn to hear with ‘true’ ears and see with ‘true’ sight.

As Jesus passed by, two blind men followed him, crying out, “Son of David, have pity on us!”  When he entered the house, the blind men approached him and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they said to him.  Then he touched their eyes and said, “Let it be done for you according to your faith.” Mt_9:27-31

So it’s not just asking and waiting for some unbelievable miracle to happen to us.  We have to BELIEVE that whatever we truly need in life will, unquestionably come.  And then, we ask Jesus.

And, of course, we never forget to give thanks!  Not just for those things we’ve received, but for every breath we take, for every morsel we have to eat, for every dry and warm night that we have shelter.  Because there are many, many people in our world today that do not even have those survival basics.  Praise God, believe, give thanks and then offer that hope to others – who may just be praying, and believing, and waiting for us!
