The Power At Work In Us

Gospel Reading Today
"Jesus called the twelve disciples together and gave them power....." Luke 9:1-6

As I meditated today on the Glorious Mysteries....The Resurrection, The Acsension, The Decent of the Holy Spirit....the overwhelming comforting thought came to my mind that the same one who rose Christ from the dead is the same power at work in us. The same Holy Spirit that descended upon the disciples and the Blessed Mother is the same Holy Spirit that descends on all of us. The same power is the one who shaped and molded our children in our wombs. This great power designed Jesus in Mary's womb and that same powerful creator designed my son to have a hearing loss for a bigger purpose....more than I could ever imagine.

When we think of life in this way, we start to experience Heaven on earth. We start seeing things in a whole different "light". My dad always says that out of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is the one who comes down from Heaven and continues to work on earth. The Holy Spirit is within, nudging us to work for the Kingdom in all different kinds of ways. The Holy Spirit is the one who guides me in my writing and who gave me courage and strength to learn how to put hearing aides on one year old one hundred times a day. This same power is at work in you guiding you through motherhood and proclaiming the good news to your children as you love them and discipline them. As you teach them about Jesus and treat others the way you would want to be treated.

So today in whatever you face, be it big or small, remember that the power of the Holy Spirit is at work in you. Like I always say, we are not alone in this great task of motherhood. We have the amazing power of the Holy Spirt always guiding us, we have Jesus picking us up when we fall and holding us in His arms, we have the Blessed Mother by our side who knows and understands what we are going through and is praying for us every step of the way.

Set your mind to do whatever it is that the Lord is calling you to do and know you have a very powerful force behind you guiding you to accomplish greatness. There is no bigger accomplishment then shaping and molding these souls for eternal life! May the Power be with you!
