Happy Feast of Christ the King!

I thank God for the gift of His graces and blessings today at Mass on this beautiful Feast Day! God is so good - ALWAYS! I am humbled and blessed to be able to share in this great Feast of Jesus in a small way because today is my birthday. It was truly wonderful and such an inspiration to hear my very favorite of all Gospel passages read for the Gospel today - Matthew 25: 31-46.

I was very cognizant of graces and blessings today and very thankful to have the gift of the Mass and the gift of Jesus Christ! As the tabernacle door shut after Communion time and we bowed our heads in honor and adoration, I prayed, "Jesus, we love you...but not enough!"

Please dear Lord, watch over the poor around us who may be cold, or homeless, or lonely. And also those in danger of abortion this day and every day. Please bless their mothers and them. Please watch over the sick and all those who have asked for our prayers. Live through us, dear Lord, and administer to others through us, please dear Lord, so that we may truly live the gospel message in today's gospel of Matthew. Show us how to allow You fully into our hearts so that we may serve You in the others that You have placed around us. We pray that one day when we face You and You ask us if we have fed You and given You drink, that we will be able to say, "Yes, Lord" because we have taken care of those who You have put in our midst. And then You will call us home! We love You, Jesus, but not enough. May our love for You increase each day. Amen

May God bless each and every one of you and your families.
