06-30-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 30, 2017
. . . a leper approached (Jesus), did him homage, and said, “Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.”  He stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, “I will do it. Be made clean.”  His leprosy was cleansed immediately.  Mt_8:1-4

Not as I will, but as You will!

The leper understood who Jesus was and “did him homage.”  When we walk into Church, beloved, do we always recognize and understand what we’re walking into.  We’re walking into the dwelling place of God.  We bless ourselves with holy water in recognition of our own sinfulness and need for cleansing.  And before we take a comfortable seat, we genuflect to the Lord, present in the tabernacle, present on the altar of sacrifice and present all around us.  We do Him homage.

“Your will be done, Lord!”  We kneel down and pray for our loved ones.  We pray for ourselves.  We pray for all the needs of our hurting community and world.  And we ASK, “Lord, if you wish you can heal us.”  Maybe there’s a little piece of the puzzle that we are responsible for doing as well.  Listen to the Lord.  Maybe it’s just a burden we need to carry now to strengthen us, to serve as an example for others, that they may bear their burdens in strength as well.  Maybe it’s just time, and with a little patience we will see that will fulfilled.

With reverence and love, we wait . . .
Your will be done, Lord!
