It is more blessed to give then receive

When we have done all these things, "we have done what we were obliged to do."

IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THEN RECEIVE
When we have done all these things, "we have done what we were obliged to do."
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In the Communion Antiphon for today's Mass we prayed: The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. Fresh and green are the pastures where he gives me repose, near restful waters he leads me (Ps. 23: 1-2).  When we truly follow the Good Shepherd many things change in a more positive way in our lives. Primarily that we in self-control, show ourselves as models of good deeds in every respect, with "integrity, dignity, and sound speech. It is such a grace to be a good example!  St. Paul's letter to Titus confirms that to be truly following our Lord, we will live in this way "as we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of the great God and of our savior Jesus Christ." Christ came, "to cleanse for himself a people as his own, eager to do what is good." And when we have done all these things, "we have done what we were obliged to do."
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: I would like to share this prayer of blessing today that was passed on to me by someone special:

 
For bringing warmth and comfort into everything you do,
For finding time to add an extra touch of kindness too,
For patience in the midst of busy hours with little rest,
For taking pride in all you do and giving it your best,
May you be forever blessed.
