Today's Gospel has one of my favorite lines and I think it is a message of Jesus to all of us: "Do not be troubled"!
We are called to trust Jesus and live in His Joy!
This was on my e-mail and I want to share it with you:
God has everything you need today.
God wants to be involved in everything you do today.
God has a purpose for everything you face today.
There is no one else as interested in everything that concerns you, as the God who loves you with all
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 NIV
--Devotional excerpts from April 16-19 of the 365 Day Perpetual Calendar By Grace Alone by Bonnie Jensen.
Hello, my name is Helen Rosenthal, RSCJ. Those initials stand for Religious of the Sacred Heart in Latin, French, Italian, and Spanish. Since my religious congregation began in France in 1800 and now is all over the world, we have kept the RSCJ. By now you know that I am not only known as Dr. Helen Rosenthal, but also as Sister Helen Rosenthal.
I am the oldest of four children. We were all born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. We lived in a big house with a playroom on the third floor. On Sundays we either went to my paternal grandmother's house where her six children would gather faithfully for supper or we would have my mother's father and our great aunt and uncle for a roast beef dinner at home. In summer, I would go to the lake with my Dad and I still love to swim.
