“Satan will do everything in his power to destroy the faith of the faithful” –John Mariani
Today’s reading tells of how “many are called, but few are chosen.” God raises up holy men and women in the midst of a crisis –the empty wedding feast. We are being summoned to a new wedding feast. To fulfill the spiritual needs and gaps being left by the current reconstruction of the Church. We are called to be images of God’s holiness in our actions and reactions to those around us.
Today, God promises new heart and new spirit rather than the darker human inclination to punish and destroy. How will we respond?
What would a national or international spiritual renewal look like in our culture and time? Where do we begin?
We pray for the strength and spirituality to influence change! Let families lead the way!
