It is Time to Seek the Lord: Family Reflection Video

It is Time to Seek the Lord: Family Reflection Video

Why pray?  |  Healing the family

Some people are talking about positive changes happening in their families during this time of lockdown because of the coronavirus. We are not sure about tomorrow, the only thing that we have at our disposal is this present moment.

In today’s first reading, the people of Israel are in a crisis. During this crisis, the prophet Hosea tells them “It is time to seek the Lord.” The Psalmist also tells Israel to “seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually.” 

To seek the Lord continually, we must humble ourselves. And Mother Teresa offered us some insightful tips for doing so.  

It is time to seek the Lord. It is time to prepare ourselves and our families to seek the Lord humbly while we are locked down and spending so much time together. We can all be influenced by Mother Teresa’s tips. Then when conflicts begin to arise, someone can ask: What would Mother Teresa say? 

Are you ready to seek the Lord with humility? It is time.
