Memorial of Saint Boniface
Time To Collect
Jesus: “I always tell you not to worry that you can give Me only little things. I say again, always remain little. Do you know what we are going to do? You will give Me the little pieces of a mosaic which you collect throughout the day. I will arrange these pieces according to their color and shape. When all is finished, you will marvel to see the work of art that I created. But I cannot be an artist unless you gather the pieces. Without you, I cannot bring about My work of art.” (Jesus) (April 10, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Jesus began to speak to the chief priests, the scribes,
and the elders in parables.
“A man planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it,
dug a wine press, and built a tower.
Then he leased it to tenant farmers and left on a journey.
At the proper time he sent a servant to the tenants
to obtain from them some of the produce of the vineyard. (Mark 12)
Prayer Meditation- Lord we love You and bless You and adore You because You have given us everything we need to be all that You have meant for us to be! You have given us all the gifts and talents we need for the purpose You have intended only for us as we are all unique, yet made in Your likeness and image. And we should not worry because even if we can only do little things, if they are done with great love, You will collect the pieces and make of all we that we do a work of art in union with You! But sadly so many of us are not offering our gifts and talents (Matthew 25:14-20) but we are hiding them and wasting them or even acting in opposition to You because we do not appreciate what we have been given and we believe that all that we own and are is due to our own efforts. Filled with self -love we do not acknowledge The God who loves us and Who has created us for Your Purpose and perfect plan for us! Lord You will come someday at the proper time which is the end of our lives and You will ask to collect the produce- the fruits of all that You have given us, and You will want to know what we have done with all of those gifts and talents. And what will we have to show for all that You have given us with so much love? May we come with the little pieces of the mosaic of our lives lived in love and in union with You and may we marvel Lord when we see the work of art You have made of our lives in Heaven!
