Out Of Our Minds

After this, I placed my daughter C in charge of the house: “From now on, you will be the little owner of this house and I will not cook anymore.” She was surprised and asked what I would do. “Whatever you ask, I will do and I will eat whatever you give to me.” – “Mother,” she said, “you are acting like a hermit.” (Elizabeth) (1961-1962)

Today’s Readings: Jesus came with his disciples into the house.
Again the crowd gathered,
making it impossible for them even to eat.
When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him,
for they said, “He is out of his mind.”

Prayer Meditation- O Lord we bless You, adore You and love You for showing us that we are not alone in feeling alone. I think many of us can relate not only to Elizabeth and her daughter’s reaction to changes in her life based on Your call but also how Your relatives responded to You! Because You have told us that You came not to bring peace but a sword (Matthew 10:34-36) , with one relative against another. Your call is radical, it is lifechanging, or at least it should be! And in these times, when we seek to console You and repair for all of those who do not love You, do not hope, and do not adore You (The Angel at Fatima) and we engage in our loving practices of fasting, prayer, daily Mass, Adoration, and making time for the Rosary ,we will be sure to hear from those closest to us that this is all too much, that we are not who we used to be, that we have become zealots! But let us be out of our minds for You Lord- in this world but not of it because we are not for this world but for heaven!
