08-04-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

August 4, 2018
(St. John Vianney, Priest)
After being threatened with death, the prophet Jeremiah said, “As for me, I am in your hands; do with me what you think good and right.  But mark well: if you put me to death, it is innocent blood you bring on yourselves, on this city and its citizens. For in truth it was the LORD who sent me to you, to speak all these things for you to hear.”  Jer_26:11-16,24

Jeremiah understood the power of God and his own place in the big picture.  A humble place.  And he also understood how the threat to the unrepentant sinners of that town, by God, was greater than anything they could ever do to him.  So he pleaded his case, presented the truth of the matter and left his life in the hands of those sinners.  The result: they accepted his testimony and Jeremiah even found an advocate to help protect him.

Sometimes we have to realize, beloved, that our lives really are not always in our own hands.  When we trust in God, when we live righteous lives according to His guidance and always tell the truth, we will see the salvation He promises, through our Lord, Jesus Christ, in this life and for eternity!
