The Lord ❤️ WILL ❤️ manifest the motives of our ❤️ hearts! ❤️
A reading from the first Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians
Brothers and sisters: Thus should one regard us: as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Now it is of course required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. It does not concern me in the least that I be judged by you or any human tribunal; I do not even pass judgment on myself; I am not conscious of anything against me, but I do not thereby stand acquitted; the one who judges me is the Lord. Therefore, do not make any judgment before the appointed time, until the Lord comes, for he will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will manifest the motives of our hearts, and then everyone will receive praise from God.
1 Corinthians 4:1-5 (emphasis added)
The First Friday Devotions are a set of Catholic devotions to especially recognize the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and through it offer reparations for sins. September’s First Friday’s Mass Readings, such as the one above, could not be more appropriate for the goings-on in our world. I know they spoke directly to my heart! ❤️
Do you ever feel judged, despite your attempt to live a life as a Servant of Christ’s?
It’s another Wednesday for Saint Maria Faustina KoWalska (what else,) with a brief reflection on the Divine Mercy of God:
“Rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when His glory is revealed” 1 Pt 4:13
793 I am reliving these moments with Our Lady. With great longing, I am waiting for the Lord’s coming…I desire that all humankind come to know the Lord. I would like to prepare all nations for the coming of the Word Incarnate. O Jesus, make the fount of Your mercy gush forth more abundantly, for humankind…has more need than ever of Your compassion. You are a bottomless sea of mercy for us sinners; and the greater the misery, the more right we have to Your mercy. You are a fount which makes all creatures happy by Your infinite mercy. -St. Faustina Kowalska
