Holding On To The Promise

Posted: April 1, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Where would we be without the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ? What hope will we have? Praise be to You O Lord my God for through You we have eternal life! This is the promise I hold on to.

My faith this Easter is greatly strengthened and renewed. When I saw the faith of a dear sister who desired greatly to receive Jesus in the Eucharist before returning to Him. The great and powerful consolations I received at her wake knowing that she is indeed with Him.

So as I witnessed the indignity and suffering of my aged Father today. Who once stood tall, is now bent over. Who is half blind and whose muscles have begun to atrophy greatly. While I weep for him in my humanity and for his. He is still my hero, my inspiration. For he possesses a fighting spirit, a Christian one!

And so I hold on dearly to the promise, as I recall and sing the beginning of the Benediction. The song of Adoration I so loved in my childhood and youth; whose lyric had only crystallised in my adulthood “Down in adoration falling, This great Sacrament we hail; Ancient types have long departed. Newer rites of grace prevail; Faith for all defects supplying, Where the feeble senses fail.”

Praise be to You my Lord Jesus Christ! My Redeemer lives and so do I! Amen
