12-04-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

December 4, 2018
(St. John Damascene, Priest and Doctor)
Jesus said, “No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”  Turning to the disciples in private he said, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.  For I say to you, many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”  Lk_10:21-24

Jesus revealed His Father and Himself to His disciples and to us through their witnesses.  And blessed are we for having those witnesses.  And blessed are we for living in the time after Jesus made those revelations.  Now, beloved, it’s our turn to pass on the stories of those mighty visions and deeds of Jesus, not only to our own children, but to the whole world.  It’s our turn to be witnesses of God’s love of them – through His actions in our lives.

For example, every week for the past 24-years, I’ve been blessed with the honor of teaching classes of fifth graders about that love of God in their lives.  And it’s absolutely amazing how much they have taught me through their own witnesses of God in their lives.  And doing this wasn’t something that was forced upon me.  Rather it was simply an unquestioned answer to God’s call for me to do a little bit more.  Sure, it was scary at first.  But my love for God had grown so much through my own learning and experience, that I was just bursting to share it.  And you know what, beloved, that call is there for you as well.  There are so, so many ways a little volunteering can make a huge difference in our lives.  All it takes is a listening heart and an answering mind!  It’s totally up to you!
