Lead Me Home…

Posted: October 25, 2012 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Today’s Gospel Luke 12:49:53

“I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled! I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished! Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division”

[Personal Reflection]

Do I embrace my Faith in the Gospels abandoning earthly feelings and natural affections? Clinging dearly to my Lord in spite of persecutions, trials and sufferings?

Do I embrace my baptism?

Do I accept that the divine love and charity of our Lord Jesus Christ who came to suffer for us, will often cause division between believers and unbelievers?

If I choose to remain steadfast in my love for Him, in spite of pain, trials and suffering. He, my Lord, my God, my saviour will lead me to the room He has prepared for me in my Father’s house. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
