Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin August 7, 2022

For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.”  Luke 12:34 Jesus encourages us to build up our treasure in heaven.  The world encourages us to build up our treasure in real estate, investments, and material goods.  How much time are you investing in building up a worldly treasure?  How much time are you investing in building up a heavenly treasure?  To invest more in the things of heaven, you must let go of some of the things of this world.

Do Something Beautiful for God – The Essential Teachings of Mother Teresa

August 5 – When a young woman of high caste comes and puts herself at the service of the poor, she is the protagonist of a revolution. It is the greatest, the most difficult revolution-the revolution of love.

August 6 – Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. Anyone may gather it and no limit is set.

August 7 – I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper's wounds I feel I am nursing the Lord Himself. Is that not a beautiful experience.

August 8 – It is easy to smile at people outside your own home. It is so easy to take care of the people that you don’t know well. It is difficult to be thoughtful and kind and to smile and be loving to those you live with day after day. This is especially true when we are tired and in a bad temper or bad mood. We all have these moments and that is the time that Christ comes to us in a distressing disguise.

August 9 – If peace and love are not allowed to take their rightful place at the table of negotiation, then hatred and anger will produce conflict that will continue for many years to come. IT will solve nothing, and thousands of innocent lives will be lost. I ask you all to pray for peace. It is such an urgent priority.

August 10 – If you are humble, nothing will touch you. Neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are. If you are blamed, you won’t be discouraged; if anyone calls you a saint, you won't put yourself on a pedestal.

August 11 – If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
