Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin August 1, 2020

“Jesus said to them, 'There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves’.” (Matthew 14:16) This is what Jesus said right before he fed the five thousand men. How often do we really place our trust in Jesus when the situation looks grim? With Jesus, no gift is too small or insignificant when offered with love. But, we have to do our part. We should trust that Jesus will provide all that we need. We need to believe that Jesus has a better plan in store for us.

Who will separate us from the love of Christ?  Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  (Romans 8:35)

Ponder:  What separates me from the love of God?

Prayer:  Lord,  your love and compassion are always with us in times of trouble.  Help me walk in solidarity with those who are suffering and show them your love and compassion.

Practice:  Today I will be faithful by being present to someone who is in pain.

And after [Jesus] had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray.  When evening came, he was there alone.  (Matthew 14:23)

Ponder:  When do I take time-outs to pray?

Prayer:  Lord,  you taught your disciples to pray. Help me cultivate the practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

Practice:  Today I will be faithful by taking a time-out for solitude and prayer.

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


July 30 - Serve God joyfully.  Let there be no sadness in your life.  The only true sorrow is sin.

July 31 - Bring God to everyone you meet each day.  Humility always radiates the glory and greatness of God.  How wonderful are the ways of God who chose humility, smallness, helplessness, and poverty to prove His love to the world.  Do not be afraid to be humble, small, and helpless in order to prove your love for God and others.

August 1 - One day right in the beginning, we had no rice for dinner and then a lady came and brought rice.  She said she was coming back from the office "and something in me told me to go to Mother Teresa and bring her rice."  How beautiful it is when we listen to the Holy Spirit.

August 2 - If our life is without prayer, it is like a house without a foundation.

August 3 - The sound of your footsteps in search of souls to love should be like sweet music for Jesus.  Keep the thirst for souls ever burning in your hearts.

August 4 - Until you hear Jesus in the silence of your heart, you will not be able to hear Him saying, "I thirst" in the hearts of the poor…

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.
