Family Reflection Video: Open Invitation from Jesus

Family Reflection Video: Open Invitation from Jesus

sacraments  |  lent  |  acceptance

There’s an open invitation to join Jesus in a place of belonging. Have you received yours?

We don’t have to wait until we die to accept Jesus’ invitation for a place of belonging. It is an open invitation that stands and is offered to each one of us today. Through the sacraments, God invites us to share his divine life partially now, but fully in heaven. He does this to meet and communicate with us, so we can enjoy a closer relationship with him.

Oftentimes we decline Jesus’ invitation because we set limits on his power to act in our lives. Discuss with your family how you each respond to Jesus’ invitation. Do you find yourself putting limits on Jesus’ power to act in your life? If so, how?

Thank you for supporting our ministry and praying with us. I will continue to pray for you and your family. God bless.
