Sr. Gail’s Reflections
“The Bible tells us that Jesus was like us in all things but sin. For this reason we can say with confidence that we can be like Jesus even when we’re doing mundane things. All the work of keeping ourselves financially stable, healthy, and happy can be part of our spiritual life. Our union with God depends on how we do the things we do.”

God Wants You Happy
Ash Wednesday and the holy season of Lent are upon us. It is so easy for us to focus on the What. What am I going to give up this Lent? Isn’t that often our biggest question? I know it sure has been mine! Let us make it our goal to be more like Jesus and focus on the “how” question in the daily events of our life. How is Jesus calling me to “Enter In?” – to enter into His Kingdom, His Person? How can I do that in my daily life? Perhaps it isn’t so much to change what I do from day to day; rather to change how I do those whats.
“Lord Jesus, enlighten our minds, reveal to us the thirst within us, that we might seek you, the Fount of Living Water in this Lent of 2014. Amen.”
“He said, ‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?’ And Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.’” (Matt.22:36-40)
“Jesus made it so easy for us to love one another. If we only remember, whatever we do, we do it for Him.”
Blessed Mother Teresa
Where There Is Love, There Is God
“When we put His will, His way, before all else, we will find what we have been created for. Being a disciple will be our greatest honor. And then we will be empowered to truly love those God has given us.”
Sr. Anne Shields, S.G.L.
To Be Like Jesus, Servant Books
Following Jesus is all about discipleship. In this context, Jesus reaches out to
each of us as our Shepherd and reveals to us Who He is, the Obedient Son of the Father.
Jesus has gone ahead of us in obedience. He trusted the Father implicitly and explicitly in everything He said and did. “I do the Father’s work.” “Father, remove this cup. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” He lived a life of true discipleship and through His life lived and surrendered, He won for each one of us the possibility of eternal life, a life of joy and peace in the heavenly kingdom, a life that never ends.
Today He speaks to your heart. He says, “I know longer call you servants, but friends. A servant does not know what his master is doing: but I have called you friends, for all that I heard from my Father I have made known to you.” (Jn. 15:15) He invites you; yes you, to be His disciple, to follow Him, the Lamb, wherever He goes. He says, “Do not be afraid. I lead you on the path to life that is forever, life that is abundant and joy-filled. In the dark valleys I will not abandon or forsake you. Rather I will lead you safely through them. Follow me.”
