First Reading – 1 Peter 4:7-13 1 June 2018

I personally feel this is a very powerful reading, so please read and meditate on God’s word and I am sure you will surely have a message from God which would encourage you and make you a better person with a purpose in life.

1 June, 2018 – Saint Justin Martyr
First reading 1 Peter 4:7-13 ©
Each of you has received a special grace
Everything will soon come to an end, so, to pray better, keep a calm and sober mind. Above all, never let your love for each other grow insincere, since love covers over many a sin. Welcome each other into your houses without grumbling. Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these different graces of God, put yourselves at the service of others. If you are a speaker, speak in words which seem to come from God; if you are a helper, help as though every action was done at God’s orders; so that in everything God may receive the glory, through Jesus Christ, since to him alone belong all glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
My dear people, you must not think it unaccountable that you should be tested by fire. There is nothing extraordinary in what has happened to you. If you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed.

The Catholic Mass (1) by Florence D’Costa

The Mass is the pinnacle of prayer.  Mass is a Celebration where we celebrate Christ.   Christ Jesus died only once on Calvary.  At every Mass we go into time and we are present at Calvary.  We are there when Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was betrayed, tormented, tortured and crucified.  He died for you and for me.  He died for the whole world and for all people.  If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, then Salvation is ours for free.  The Mass is a powerful weapon against Satan and his wiles.    The whole of heaven is present during Mass with all the angels and saints.  At Mass, there are readings and the gospel – The Liturgy of the Word.  We have the prayers of the faithful.  At the Offertory, the priest offers the whole congregation to God – as we are, including our sinfulness.  Liturgy of the Eucharist – When we receive Jesus Christ in Holy Communion, God, the Father, blesses us and a lot of graces is given to us so that we can continue to live for Christ and for what He stands for.  At Holy Communion, we receive Jesus Christ Himself.  Let us pray that Christ whom we receive in Holy Communion will make us a new creation and will make us more and more like Him.  I will continue to write about the Mass as and when I feel prompted by the Holy Spirit.

Traditional Marriage between A Catholic Man and a Catholic Woman by Florence D’Costa

When a Catholic Man and a Catholic Woman who really and truly love each other, get married in a Catholic Church by a Catholic priest in the Presence of God, that is the best thing that could happen. This couple should make every effort to continue to stay in love for the rest of their lives. They should pray daily and make God their Number One ……

We are many Parts by Florence D’Costa

When either, we, our families, our church or our country face huge problems, we must believe that Christ lives and that He knows exactly what we are going through, WE MUST PRAY WITH FAITH and we will get answers.

Romans 12:2 by Florence D’Costa

Romans 12:2  Do not copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

What does Paul mean.  He means exactly what he has written – He very specifically tells us not to copy the behaviour and customs of this world.  At the moment in Australia a small group is clambering to redefine marriage and in Victoria the Government is trying to bring in a culture of death – they are wanting to bring in Euthanasia.  Now this is the way some parts of the world are thinking. But Paul says, ‘let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. ‘  So, we are called to look to God and not to the world, He will teach us his ways and make us a new person who will not be part of the world but a people who will belong to God.  When we belong to God, we will know God’s Will for us which will be good, pleasing and perfect – to God ofcourse.

The ways of the world is definitely not God’s ways and hence it should definitely not be our ways as well.  My experience is when we look to Christ and follow God’s Holy Will, we will be transformed and made new and when people see us, they will surely know that we belong to Christ.

God is our shepherd by Florence D’Costa

God is our Shepherd and we Iike sheep have all gone astray, so God laid all our iniquity upon His Son Jesus Christ so that we the sheep would be saved and redeemed. So, let our prayer be ‘ Shepherd me O God beyond my wants, beyond my fears from death into life’.

Make me a Channel of Your Peace by Florence D’Costa

There are many in this world who are very unhappy and who feel that life has no meaning and they want to end their lives by committing suicide. Some people also because of their tremendous suffering and pain also want to end their lives … There is life after death and through suffering we can attain heaven. When we lose patience and want to commit suicide or when we try to ask someone’s else is to end our lives, we are surely heading off in the wrong direction – Euthanasia is VERY WRONG…..
