02-13-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 13, 2018
Blessed is the man who perseveres in temptation, for when he has been proved he will receive the crown of life that he (God) promised to those who love him.  Jas_1:12-18

Boy, how I wish I could say that this man is me!  But it certainly is not.  Try as I may, those temptations of daily life constantly beat me down.  There may be three steps forward and then there’s that fall again, and time to start all over.  And I wonder, will I EVER succeed?  Jesus tells us that we cannot succeed without the help of the Holy Spirit.  So then, I surrender all for His wisdom.  I surrender all, for His strength.  I surrender all for His perseverance!  I give you, Lord Jesus, my Love.  And I offer you my self!

What about you, beloved?
Are YOU the “blessed” one in this verse?

Come Holy Spirit!  Fill the hearts of your faithful ones!
And enkindle in us the fire of your Being!
