Precious In the Sight Of The Lord Is The Death Of His Holy Ones

When you are in Heaven and from up there you contemplate the death of one of your children, you will be by his bed. Your drop of oil will fall on the empty lamp and the Flame of Love of the Blessed Virgin will be lit. (Jesus) (October 9, 1962)

Today’s Readings: When the time of David’s death drew near, he gave these instructions to his son Solomon: “I am going the way of all flesh. Take courage and be a man. Keep the mandate of the LORD, your God, following his ways and observing his statutes, commands, ordinances, and decrees (1 Kings 2)

Prayer Meditation- Lord not many of us think about or want to think about the time when we leave this Earth to come to You. Because we will indeed go the way of all flesh but what are we leaving behind? Are we leaving a legacy of faith and trust in You- did we do everything we could to lead our children to You? Lord You know well many of us have regrets in this area- I know personally I was not right with You for many years. And yet Lord, at the end of the day we are judged on love (St. John of the Cross). So it is never too late- let us while it is today (Hebrews 3:13) pray and sacrifice for our families and let Your Love cover what we can’t because You are calling us and our families home to You! Let us take courage and never lose heart because You are already ahead of us and have already worked all things together for good for those who love You! (Romans 8:28)
