You Think You Are Looking for Me

In His March 13, 1995 message at the apparition site, Jesus said, "My Kingdom is not of this world. You look for the gods of this world and you think you are looking for Me."

The reflection which follows is from the Chapter titled "Life's Daily Warfare" on pages 352 and 353 of "My Daily Bread" [see Bibliography]:

Christ: (3) The world fights Me by its false standards of self-respect, ambition, and success. These are merely different names for self-seeking without regard for others, not even Me. True self-respect, and the right ambition are those which direct your eyes to your highest perfection and eternal happiness, above all that is temporary and incomplete.

(4) The flesh fights Me with its animal desires, its likes and dislikes, which make it harder for you to think clearly and to strive for what is right. Your blind self-seeking and your stubborn pride offer you many false reasons for doing what is really bad for you. With these influences continually at work, you are open to continual self-deception.

Think: ... In His Commandments, His Words and His Sacraments, Jesus offers me the knowledge and strength to be loyal followers of His.

No Sacrifice is too small.


(Matthew 6:16-18)
And when you fast, be not as the hypocrites, sad. For they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Amen I say to you, they have received their reward. But thou, when thou fastest anoint thy head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not to men to fast, but to thy Father who is in secret: and thy Father who seeth in secret, will repay thee.

Nancy offered her liquid fast to God today for a very serious intention along with her prayers. Later in the afternoon she was hungry and she broke her fast by taking a couple of bites of food. While she was regretting how she did not do better she began to wonder if this offering really matters. Moments later a gold mystical light appeared. At that moment she got a strong sense that there was indeed someone there even though she could not distinguish any specific shape in this light.

She understood in a real way that no sacrifice is too small as an offering to God.

Our living God is everywhere. Not a thought, not a word, not an action, does our Merciful, loving God miss. He really is right there with us, loving us, caring about us and helping us.

Give God your prayers, your daily offerings and most of all your heart where ever you are. Remember you can never outdo His generosity.
