Rejoice and Be Glad 4
14 May 2018
Pope Francis teaches:
Do not be afraid to set your sights higher, to allow yourself to be loved and liberated by God.
Today’s Gospel for the feast of St. Matthias – the replacement for Judas – is John 15:
As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Remain in my love.
Talk of “allowing myself to be loved” and “remaining in Christ’s love” has got me thinking and feeling:
What “roadblocks” have I erected in my relationship with the Lord?
And so I pray:
Lord, may I feel, understand and accept your love.
