Messenger: At every Mass we
bring all of our
offerings in trying to serve God doing all things
for His honor and glory — We lay down our lives —
united to Jesus at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
God has taught us
the importance of the
Mass, as members of the body of Christ — we come as
great intercessors to worship, love, adore, honor and
petition our God for our needs and for the sake
of souls. We love the souls more deeply every
moment of our lives.
at Mass as a member of the body
of Christ — a baptized Catholic is so important to
our lives and the lives of the Church and the world.
It is so important our realization of this at Mass
we pray for the priests, the Church and the world in
the prayer chapters, but our awareness of daily
Mass and our participation at Mass praying for
the priests, the Church and the world is so important.
Our lives lived
every moment so identified
with Christ is a constant offering through the
morning offering, praying to the Father, united to Jesus,
in the Holy Spirit united to the angels and saints
and the souls in purgatory — through the intercession
of Mary —
We pray so very
deeply — giving our lives here below
for our own salvation some day and for the sake of
souls on earth and in purgatory.
Our awareness of
the heavenly banquet is so
keen — our thirsting for the beatific vision for all
eternity and our ever growing love of God and of
souls is why we live.
Love is it.
Growth in the
ways of being more likened to Him
creatures of love. Permeated with the love of the
Holy Spirit — His Spirit filling our souls to be as God
desires us to be every moment of our lives.
Our life is a
sacrifice — an offering to the Father,
in the Holy Spirit — so united to the Holy Sacrifice of
the Mass going on around the world.
Our lives are harmonious — with order and love
despite the disharmony of this world that surrounds
us — we are living the Word of God so deep in our
soul — His Word is alive in us — we are one with
God so deeply — So actively united to the Holy Sacrifice
of the Mass being celebrated around the world.
We are one with each other in a special way giving ourselves
especially to the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
One in Their Hearts — purity
One in the body of Christ — strength
like the parts of a body are one, finger, toe, etc —
We are one — His precious creatures —
Jesus shed His blood for
Spreading the devotion to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts —
Helps us to be more one and holy — offering a
more pure sacrifice of our lives given
(laying down our lives for God).
This sacrifice IS doing our work.
It is our offering —
It is living our lives as He wants us to in love.
