But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

I don’t know any other way to say this than to just be blunt and say it…it is time to get back to your Sunday obligation. It is time to get back to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath. Yesterday’s Gospel – for the Ascension of the Lord, convinced me that now is the proper time.

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Go into the whole world
and proclaim the gospel to every creature.
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved;
whoever does not believe will be condemned.
These signs will accompany those who believe:
in my name they will drive out demons,
they will speak new languages.
They will pick up serpents with their hands,
and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them.
They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them,
was taken up into heaven
and took his seat at the right hand of God.
But they went forth and preached everywhere,
while the Lord worked with them
and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.

Are you hearing the same message that the Holy Spirit inspired me with in yesterday’s Gospel… These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages. They will pick up serpents with their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

No harm will come to those who believe. Hands will be laid on the sick and they will recover. No harm will come to those who believe…

Do something great for our Lord today – BELIEVE. Believe in Him. Believe that you will be safe in His house. He has promised no harm will come to you. Please come back to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy Grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin.

God’s will, not mine, be done.

Be not afraid; just have faith.

Jesus, I trust in You.

He must increase; I must decrease.

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

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