10-26-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 26, 2017
St. Paul wrote, now that you have been freed from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit that you have leads to sanctification, and its end is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom_6:19-23

I think I know my house layout pretty well.  But if I walk around with my eyes closed and stub my toe on a chair leg or a wall, the “wages” of my stupidness is pain.  And yet, I can walk all over the house with my eyes open and never stub my toe.  But do I give thanks to God for His gift of my eyesight?

Funny, how quick we are to curse God when things don’t go our way, even though we’re walking in a “valley of the shadow of sin and death.”  But how often do we give Him thanks for all that goes right in our life?  How often do we find ourselves walking in the brightness of the Light of Christ and never acknowledge it!  We really are incredibly blessed, beloved, incredibly loved, incredibly Holy (even though we fall from time to time)!

So we thank you Father for sending your Son to remind us of that LOVE, that holiness, especially at the cost of His life!
