In the apostolate, faith and obedience are indispensable. Of what use are our efforts, our human resources, our wakeful vigils or even our mortifications, if they are separated from any supernatural sense ...? Without obedience, everything is useless in God’s eyes. ICWG Sunday Reflection from Scepter Publishers.
When we gather together to take part in the Holy Mass we stand, in an attitude of watchfulness, to hear the Good News that the Gospel always brings us. We have to listen to it with a disposition which is at once attentive, humble and grateful because we know that God is speaking to each one of us in particular. In Conversation With God Sunday Reflection from scepter publishers.
Mary is a mother who is more attentive to all our needs than any mother on earth ever has been or ever will be. The miracle takes place because Our Lady has interceded; it happens only because of her petition. Scepter Reflection on the Wedding Feast at Cana. In Conversation With God Sunday Reflections.
Today’s feast gives us an opportunity to have a renewed awareness of those baptismal commitments which we took ourselves, or on that day when our parents or godparents spoke on our behalf. We should reaffirm our devotion to Christ and our intention to come closer to him every day. We should resolve to separate ourselves from all sin.
