Love Conquers All

From Our Lay Director,

What a glorious time it is in May! Outside, there are more sunny days, our gardens are or will soon be planted, farming machinery is on the road. May is such a month of promise.

Where are our minds directed? Toward the promise of eternal life? If so, how are we spending our time and talent and resources?

We had such beautiful Cursillo weekends this Spring. The witnesses and joyful faces of our newest Cursillistas certainly helped to reinforce my desire to better live my life for Christ, and to bring others to desire that even more for themselves than they do already.

This is the time to “Make a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ”. It seems as if when the weather gets better, we get together with friends more often. As we understand and embrace the gift of ourselves as beloved children of God, we draw others to us, giving us the opportunity to share our love of Jesus with them.

I grew up in a home where both my parents were very devoted to God and to their roles as members of the Catholic Church. My mom was a stay-at-home mom, although with 5 kids, her younger sister with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and my father with his very busy life to care for, she did not have a very quiet life. BUT she was a very peaceful, loving person even with the challenges of her daily life, and others were drawn to her by the essence of who she was. She was quick to say, from 1 Peter 4:8b, “Love covers over a multitude of sins.” I didn’t understand that as a child, but now I realize that she knew well that we are all struggling, that Earth is not Heaven, that we are not perfect, but love conquers all. She lived well the verse from 1 Peter 4:10, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Happy Heavenly Mother’s Day, Mom!
