Feast of Peter and Paul is this coming Sunday
Although I am concentrating on the Feast of the Sacred Heart tomorrow, I do not want to neglect preparing for the Sunday liturgy that honors Peter and Paul. Jesus chose both of these very human and holy men. One led the Jewish Christians to follow the Risen Christ; the other reached out to the Gentiles and both of these saints had great faith and laid down their lives for Jesus.
Tomorrow we look at Jesus who has given His life for us; Jesus' Heart was pierced and out flowed both blood and water. He is the living water that satisfies our thirst for God. We celebrate His Love and His Mercy in this feast; He asks us to learn from Him who is meek and humble of Heart.
