Pearl of Great Price

After your death, there will abound in the treasures of your heart those
who will know, bless and glorify God. God helped you with His boundless grace to have a life
filled with treasures. Those who will live after you on earth can draw abundantly from these
treasures. They will be able to follow the simple road of your life. By this path, they also can
reach Me.” (Jesus) (November 17-18, 1964)

Today’s Readings: Jesus said to his disciples:
“The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field,
which a person finds and hides again,
and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant
searching for fine pearls.
When he finds a pearl of great price,
he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.” (Matthew 13)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, You are the pearl of great price, the treasure in the field! For so long, I had no idea, I took my faith and You for granted. Then You turned my life upside down and I had nowhere to go but You! You blessed this broken road and took me by the hand- Lord I had no idea that the pearl of great price was not only You in my life but You fully present in Your Church! That was quite the surprise and I traded my ideas of who You were and what church was ten years ago for entry into Your Church! Lord I pray that this little path I am on now filled with boundless grace will sow seeds in my family so that they too will find You in all of Your Fullness!
