Thoughts off the Glass

Lent ……. Day Twenty-Two

Lent ……. Day Twenty-Two

“…there is no joy comparable to that which the truly poor in spirit experience.”  (Story of a Soul, 226)
St. Therese of Lisieux

“Blessed are the are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  Matthew 5:3

(These are my notes from a retreat we hold for kids coming into full communion with the Church at the Mother Cabrini Shrine.)

* What is the opposite of humble?  Pride/Ego – full of yourself  – anger and revenge only bring sadness and misery.   Not – no money or to be sad.  * Jesus is telling us to be humble and to place all our trust in God.  Knowing God is always there.  *  Rely on God knowing that all our talents and gifts come from God.  * When we trust God & put Him in charge we are humbled.   *  simple message is this: Talk to God – Trust Him  — Tell Him your troubles  (song I sang as a kid “Let us have a little talk with Jesus , Let us tell Him all about our troubles.”)   * What’s our return/reward?  Kingdom of Heaven.
