Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin, July 14, 2024

“He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick – no food, no sack, no money in their belts.” Mark 6:8 Imagine taking nothing but a stick when you go on a trip. The Apostles must have really trusted in God’s providential care. Think of all the material things “we can’t live without” in today’s world. We make our life’s journey more difficult because of all the material baggage that we drag along. Putting God first in everything and putting our money and possessions second gives us freedom because we don’t become “slaves” to wanting to acquire more things.

[Jesus] called the twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. (Mark 6:7)

Ponder: How do I exercise my authority?

Prayer: Lord, you offered your life in humble service to humanity. Empower me with your spirit, that I may be a humble servant of love and compassion to all people.

Practice: Today I will be faithful by using my authority and power for good.

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

July 12 – It is much easier to conquer a country than to conquer ourselves.

July 13 – Every act of love is a work of peace, no matter how small.

July 14 – I don’t claim anything of the work. It’s His work. I’m like a little pencil in His hand. That’s all. He does the thinking. He does the writing. The pencil has nothing to do with it. The pencil has only to be allowed to be used.

July 15 – Rigorous poverty is our safeguard. We do not want, as has been the case with other religious orders throughout history, to begin serving the poor and then gradually move toward serving the rich. In order for us to understand and to be able to help those who lack everything, we have to live as they live. The difference lies only in the fact that those we aid are poor by force, whereas we are poor by choice.

July 16 – We are entirely at the disposal of the Church. We profess a deep personal love for the Holy Father. We surrender ourselves completely to be united with Him as carriers of God’s love. Pray for us that we don’t spoil the work God has called us to do.

July 17 – Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person. Today.

July 18 – Abandonment is an awful poverty. There are poor people everywhere, but the deepest poverty is not being loved.
