My Dear People,
Are You Drowning God?
What suffocates the life out of your spiritual life? What drowns the voice of God in you heart? These are the serious spiritual questions Jesus asked His Disciples in our Gospel this week. Money, worries, vices, and sin all drain our spiritual energy. We have been told, that only ONE GOD may we serve at one time. When we are so distracted by the cares and worries of this world, our focus is taken off of our God. This is when the devil does his best work.
Once distracted, the evil one can then attempt to control what we say and do. Jesus' temptations in the desert are a great example of this tactic. Each time Jesus met the devil on his own terms, He utterly rebuked him. We must do the same in the name of Our Lord Jesus. God will then become our source of strength. Only through God's power can the evil one be held at bay. Call upon the name of the Lord often. Come to know His saving power. Delight in God's mighty hand.
May the lure of riches and material goods not choke God out of your life.
Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
