Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

This has been a challenging year to say the least and one doesn’t need me to recount all of what has gone on this year. Many of us has lost loved ones – some to Covid, some to cancer, some to any other sort of tragedy that has taken that life from us. I’ve said in many conversations this year, one of the saddest things I’ve witnessed during the pandemic is a funeral. Many times there have been no wakes and the Mass was limited to the immediate family only. My Mom found out the other day of the passing of one her childhood friends she had come into contact with again a few years ago and the friendship had blossomed once again. But just as quickly as that had happened, it seems, she was gone again. My Mom wasn’t able to attend the wake or the funeral Mass to pay her last respects. Sadly, I can cite many such examples.

Sorry, the purpose of this blog is not to be a “downer” but to help anyone who reads this to find God. We have a wonderful source to do this and that is through His Word. Our Gospel tells us that His Words will never – NEVER pass away. Each and everyday I receive an email that sends me to the readings of the Holy Mass. In it I find inspiration for men and women who were inspired by God’s Holy Spirit before, during and after Christ’s time here on earth. From the time man first learned to communicate with each other, these stories from the Bible have been spoken, written and shared with every generation since. And they are still being shared today. It is through this great book we call the Bible that we can share in all of the joys, sorrows, suspense, inspiration, humor and trials of a life we are all part of…whether Jew or Catholic or Baptist or Lutheran or United Church of Christ, man or woman, adult or child – this great book was written to inspire all of us – through every generation and beyond.

Heaven and earth will pass away, 
but my words will not pass away.

God’s Word was not just for reading, but His Word was made flesh and walked among us, sharing in our joys and sorrows, there to be with us first hand in everything that we do and experience in life. He is still with us today; He will be with us again tomorrow.

Do something great for our Lord today – open up His book and enlighten yourself to His Word – it is alive and it is our light in this time of darkness.

God’s will, not mine, be done.

Be not afraid; just have faith.

Jesus, I trust in You.

Lord, if You wish, You can make me clean.

But you man of God chose righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience and gentleness. Compete well for the faith.

Heaven and earth will pass away, 
but His words will not pass away.
